Raincoats, car windshields, waterproof phones: They all use a little chemistry to stay dry. Inspired by nature, chemists use extremely water-fearing, or superhydrophobic, coatings to repel water from surfaces to keep them dry. Watch as the Reactions team uses a high-speed camera and some brave volunteers to bring the science of staying dry to life. For more water-repelling chemistry, check out this great graphic from our friends at C&EN and Compound Interest: Periodic graphics: Water-repelling chemistry.
