Abstract

Uloborus walckenaerius spider webs provided the inspiration for attachable, self-standing nanofibre sheets. The developed product adds selective wettability against oil-water mixtures to both 2D and 3D materials by attaching or covering them, leading to successful separation through a facile, scalable and low-cost process.
