Nanostructured surfaces similar to those found in nasturtium leaf waxes were prepared by organic vapor deposition on a silicon wafer, with a range of crystal densities. The nanostructured surface consisting of 200 nm thick nonacosane showed the lowest adhesion. Bionic shark skin-like surfaces with different heights were prepared by reactive ion etching. Surfaces with a hierarchical structure were prepared by organic vapor deposition on the bionic shark skin with a thickness of 200 nm. 3, 4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) showed lower adhesion on the hierarchical structures as compared to the nanostructured surfaces, indicating that the surfaces with a hierarchical structure were strongly anti-adhesive and hydrophobic, with excellent resistance to water adhesion.

Key words: DOPA, Hierarchical structure, Colloidal probe, Anti-adhesion
