A heatable and evaporation-free miniature reactor upon superhydrophobic pedestals

Abstract

Superhydrophobic material-based miniature reaction systems (MRSs) show great potential in the effective use of valuable reagents and solvents, but suffer from a water evaporation problem. Here we report a novel MRS utilizing superhydrophobic materials to freely manipulate aqueous droplets in oil, which provides a confined space with the capability to perform a heatable (80 °C) and time-consuming (24h) miniature reaction inside the coalesced droplet reactor.
