Recently, there are a lot of studies on the engineering application of biomimetic functional surface in the world. The nature-inspired functional surfaces offer many solutions for copying with problems which are faced with human such as environmental contamination, energy depletion, exhaustion of water, and food shortage by giving the high quality function to industrial products. In this paper, we introduce the superhydrophobicity of nature surface and review the research on theoretical modeling and fabrication of superhydrophobic surface with micro/nanostructure.
