Papilla-like magnetic particles with hierarchical structure for oil removal from water

Author affiliations

Abstract

Inspired by selective wettability and hierarchical structure of papillae on lotus seeds, papilla-like magnetic particles were fabricated by thermal treatment of Fe microparticles. The papilla-like magnetic particles modified by lauric acid exhibited superhydrophobicity, superoleophilicity and great oil removing capability from water.
