Therefore, it is a challenge to develop more convenient methods to quickly deposit titanate nanostructured powder on various substrates to construct superhydrophobic films. In this work, stable TiO2-based nanobelt/fluoroalkylsilane (TNB/FAS) hybrid solution were synthesized by a hydrogen-bond-driven functionalization on titanate nanobelts in non-aqueous system using a pre-hydrolysis fluoroalkylsilane.Hydrophobic surfaces with optical transmittance levels above 80% throughout most of the visible region of the spectrum, or excellent superhydrophobic films with extreme water adhesion contrast were realized for the optimized deposition.
