There is a kind of magical super-infiltration phenomenon in nature, which is caused by the special micro-and nano-structures on its surface. For example, the droplets of water on lotus leaves after rain, and the lightness skill of water striders float on the water. In the manuscript, two simple super-infiltrative interfacial agents and a switch-type Cu(OH)2@ZIF-8 nanomesh were synthesized by simulating the micro-interface structure of natural plants. The omni-directional popularization of science is a magical and interesting natural phenomenon to stimulate teenagers' interest in nature and science.

Key words: Superhydrophobic, Micro-nano super-structure, Switching film, Lotus leaf
