Mục đích của bài báo là nghiên cứu một số bề mặt cấu trúc tự nhiên, thiết kế thông minh và sá ng tạ o trên bề mặt của chú ng nhằm ứng dụng chúng vào công nghiệp. Bề mặt lá sen (Nelumbo nucifera) được biết đến như một mặt phẳng không dính nước, bề mặt của rêu (Bryophyta) được xem như một bề mặt ưa nước và da cá mập (Carcharodon Carcharias) như bề mặt với các thông số rất tốt về thủy cơ đã được lựa chọn để nghiên cứu và phát họa cấu trúc. Ban đầu tất cả các mẫu được sấy khô trong không khí và sau đó phun lên bề mặt mẫu một lớp hợp kim Au-Pd.

Công nghệ Thủy sản Suitable examples are water repellent plant leaves surfaces created by various structures where the microstructure is formed of single surface cells and the nanostructure is formed by wax particles secreted on the cells surface In some cases there may occurred obvious macrostructure which can even be visible by the naked eye These structures facilitate to leaves to stay clean because adhered dust and other impurities hinder a process of photosynthesis [1], [2] The first studied object was a superhydrophobic surface of a leaf of an Indian lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) Other surfaces inspiring to a muse may be for instance a hydrophilic moss surface ensuring water and nutrients absorption without necessity of using a root system The structures lessening water flow resistance could be animal skins - shark skin in case of this study [3] II EXPERIMENTS For a microscopic evaluation and following image analysis were chosen samples of the Indian lotus, the moss and the shark skin All the samples were dried in the air and sputtered by a thin layer of Au-Pd alloy Observations of the structures were performed on a scanning electron microscope (SEM) VEGA\\TESCAN at magnifications in the range of 200 to 100000x at 10 kV accelerating voltage SEM images of the sample surface structures were used for the image analysis which aim was finding dimensions and geometry of the micro and nanoparticles Software ImageTool version 3.0, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio was used for the image analysis The images were tresholded and transferred to binary images, i.e bright areas (peaks of the surface cells of the lotus) on the SEM images were transferred to white colour and areas among the cells to black colour The images were purified from noise (spots and smears) Some cells on the SEM images were joined together which would be evaluated as a one cell instead of two ones This problem was treated by a “watershed” function After a segmentation of the epidermal cells a cell density ρcells was evaluated Another step was a contact area ratio between liquid and solid phase fLSmicro evaluation (i.e a sum of the white areas divided by the whole image area) The same policy was applied to get fLSnano values A figure shows the origin area from which was measured the cells density ρcells and outlines of the contact areas [4] 40 • TRƯỜNG ĐẠI HỌC NHA TRANG Số 1/2014 Figure Upper side of the Indian lotus leaf with the applied image analysis on the SEM image [4] The image analysis evaluated these values: Cells density: ρcells = 3205 [mm-2] = 0,101 [-] Contact area ratio fLSmicro = 0,241 [-] fLSnano There can be counted which area is equal to a single cell from the cell density ρcells assuming hexagonal layout of the cells The single cell area multiplied by fLSmicro corresponds with an area which is in contact with liquid from which was derived a contact diameter dcont written bellow: On the basis of the image analysis a model of a form for fabrication has been designed The value of dcont from the analysis (Fig up) is adequate to a value of a formations which should be fabricated (Fig down) A density of the fabricated formations, their pitches and geometric layout should also be adequate to the studied natural surface [4] Figure Models of natural surface structure (up) and its transformation to technical form (down) [4] Tạp chí Khoa học - Công nghệ Thủy sản Số 1/2014 III RESULTS AND DISCUSSION With the usage of the SEM and image analysis, the evaluation of three different types of natural objects was performed The lotus leaf is known for its specific characteristic which is a high hydrophobicity This characteristic is achieved by the microstructure and the nanostructure of the leaf surface which may also be increased by chemical composition of the surface waxes on the nanoscale level By the surface analysis, data about the shapes, layouts, dimensions and densities of the cells and the waxes have been achieved There is no possibility of identical structural analogy fabrication by current conventional methods A following tab shows a contact angles and their hysteresis, the epidermal cell densities, the micro and nano contact area ratios and derived contact diameters with heights and pitches between asperities (epidermal cells) for chosen hydrophobic surfaces Tab Geometric parameters of chosen hydrophobic plants Micro Contact Epidermal contact angle cell density area ratio hysteresis ρcells fLSmicro [°] [mm-2] [-] Nano contact area ratio fLSnano [-] Contact diameter dcont [µm] Plant name Contact angle [°] Epidermal Epidermal cell height cell pitch H [µm] P [µm] Indian lotus* (Nelumbo Nucifera) 146,7 ± 3,5 1,4 ± 0,9 3205 0,101 0,241 6,6 12,2 17,7 Cock’s-foot* (Dactylis glomerata) 146,7 ± 1,9 2,1 ± 1,3 3764 0,201 0,190 8,3 9,0 16,3 St John’s wort* (Hypericum perforatum) 151,6 ± 1,5 1,7 ± 1,0 1562 0,114 0,249 9,6 11,3 25,3 Poinsettia* (Euphorbia Pulcherrima) 146,3 ± 5,0 1,4 ± 0,9 2022 0,098 0,168 7,9 6,8 22,2 * All the values were measured on the upper side of dehydrated leaves Indian lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) Figure Typical structure of the Indian lotus surface Convex epidermal cells (the upper image) covered by the tiny wax rods (the lower image) SEM images [4] The Indian lotus is a thermo-philic tropic swamp plant which originates from India Almost circular leaves emerge from swamp water as well as their blossoms Despite growing in backwater the lotus remains perfectly clean a dried which is ensured by its hierarchic structure formed by the microscale concave cells with hollow nanoscale wax rods on the cells surfaces The length of the wax rods is about 600 nm and its diameters (inner and outer) about 100 nm (fig 4) Besides being clean, this structure also ensures self-cleaning ability There was found out by the image analysis that the cell density ρcells is 3205 mm-2 and hollow rods density ρwaxes was approximately mil mm-2 This nanostructure with such a huge density and a nanoparticles shape is unfabricatable by current technologies Fig shows the measured dimensions on models [4] TRƯỜNG ĐẠI HỌC NHA TRANG • 41 Tạp chí Khoa học - Cơng nghệ Thủy sản Số 1/2014 Figure Models of the surface structure covering leaves of the Indian lotus - the documentation of the structure [4] Although the contact angles and hysteresis of four different hydrophobic leaves are very similar, geometrical parameters of the leaves vary distinctly This variety may be caused by morphology and geometry of epidermal waxes and their chemical compositions Wax morphology varies from tubes to platelets with different types of arrangement Indian lotus possesses hollow tubes with irregular arrangement while St John’s wort has regular platelets with spacing which resembles stars with five tips St John´s wort microstructure seems to be the most profitable because it has the highest contact angle (151,6 ± 1,5) with the largest dimensions of asperities which is less difficult for fabrication and also cheaper Due to the fineness, variety and wide morphology of waxes which is currently inimitable it would be useful to choose St John´s wort microstructure dimensions as a default microstructure and try to deposit nanoasperities (PECVD) with varying dimensions and find out the best combination of micro and nanostructure to get the highest contact angle value experimentally Moss (Bryophyta) Mosses are green nonvascular plants of a small growth with a distinct ability to retain water The mosses accept water by the whole surface of thallus and distribute it by their water conducting tissues or easily by wettable surfaces The way how the mosses manage water enables them to use even very little amount of rainfall 42 • TRƯỜNG ĐẠI HỌC NHA TRANG Figure SEM image of the moss with the obvious structured surface The image analysis showed an elongated hexagonal alignment of the structure Dimensions gained from the real structure were used for a fabrication of a form for plastic material injection The form has been fabricated in many dimensional variations with maintenance of a dimensions ratio and its function has been currently tested in real conditions Figure Model of the moss surface for the form fabrication Tạp chí Khoa học -
