The implementation of nanotechnology has ushered in a new era of revolutionary change throughout the world in terms of the development of more energy-efficient technologies. This chapter looks at the basics of, challenges with and current developments in superhydrophobic coatings, with the goals of reducing drag and boosting heat transfer. Although superhydrophobic materials have shown promising results in reducing drag and enhancing heat transfer, they still face obstacles such as high fabrication costs, technical complexity, stability and durability. This chapter discusses the possibility of overcoming these obstacles, which are important for the creation of novel superhydrophobic materials that improve heat transfer and reduce drag.
