Hydrogels are ubiquitous in our daily lives. Applications range from jelly pudding and diapers to scaffolds in tissue engineering. A hydrogel-coating is covalently attached to a micropillar array. Swelling the hydrogel-coating with water establishes a liquid-infused surface (LIS). On LIS, liquid-depletion is synonymous with loss of functionality.
We demonstrate that the hydrogel-based LIS can be kept lubricated upon a shear-flow of oil for a wide variety of flow conditions independent of the exact nature of the hydrogel-coating. Dehydration of the hydrogel-coating is followed by confocal laser scanning microscopy and progresses linearly independent of flow conditions and hydrogel. The mechanism is explained with the help of an extended diffusion model.
