Natural creatures complement structure and function, showing the excellent function of droplet transferring, such as spider silk and desert beetle’s back, which are closely related to the surface wetting property. Bionic design and characterization of functional surfaces are helpful for efficiently transfer and precisely manipulation of droplets, which should be useful in the field of microfluidic control, targeted therapy and heat dissipation of micro/nano devices.

Inspired by the surface wettability of the natural creatures, a kind of bioinspired surfaces capable of efficiently transferring droplets is successfully designed and fabricated in this work. Firstly, the dynamic behavior of droplets transferring on the surface with wettability gradient is studied theoretically and experimentally, and the dynamic morphology is accurately characterized. Secondly, biomimetic surfaces with shape patterned and movable wettability gradient are prepared based on the lubrication effect of Nepenthes pitcher plants, on which the spreading and transferring of droplets along arbitrary path are achieved. Finally, to reduce resource pollution caused by the direct contact between the droplet and the surface, a magnetically multi-level surface is fabricated by imitating the high adhesion state of rose petals and superhydrophobic property of lotus leaves. Such a surface can be used as a “mechanical hand” for transferring droplets without residue or direct contact or transport distance limitation.
