For many years, the concept of solid surface wetting has been a centre of attraction for many research groups. Undoubtedly there has been immense advancement in understanding the concept of superhydrophobicity and superhydrophilicity in these recent years. The abode of nature has been a source of inspiration and motivation for us. It’s unbounded mysteries has compelled many researchers to mimic the nature thereby exploring vast fabrication techniques. Here we have tried to fabricate fractal patterns mediated superhydrophilic surface and superhydrophobic surface by self-assembly of nanoparticles. Here we have tried to emphasize the role of fractals in inducing nano-roughness and affecting the surface wettability. The fabrication process is very simple as well as economically viable.
