Multi-functional hybrid protonated titanate nanobelts with tunable wettability

Abstract

We present the preparation of millimetre-sized liquid marbles with strong mechanical strength and good deformability using self-assembled fluoroalkylsilane functionalized titanate nanobelt powder. The strength and deformability of the marbles are adjustable by changing the intrinsic wetting state of the titanate nanoparticles. The excellent chemical stability of surface layer on the liquid marbles consisting of the titanate nanobelts provides the possibility for qualitative and quantitative chemical sensing under a wide range of pH values.
