In the present work, we study the wetting behavior of TiO2 nanotube layers using droplets of ionic liquids. This allows us to examine the wetting characteristics under the vacuum conditions of a scanning electron microscope and, therefore, with a very high local resolution. From the results, it is evident that as-formed nanotubes are superhydrophilic; however, strange preferential wetting takes place in the intertubular space. Furthermore, results with octadecyl silane (ODS)-coated tubes show the expected superhydrophobic behavior but also show that an E-beam-induced chain scission mechanism can be initiated similar to classical pseudo-photocatalytic effects. © 2010 The Electrochemical Society.
