Hierarchical fascine-like bundles of copper(II) 1,8,15,22-tetranitrophthalocyanine were prepared by an water-phase method, and showed desirable superhydrophobic characteristics without additional surface modification. Prominent advantages of this approach include: the use of water as reaction solvent obviously avoid environmental problems associated with organic solvents and the directly obtained hierarchical structures could be used as superhydrophobic materials. Based on the investigation of various experiment conditions, including additives, copper powders and reaction time, a growth and assembly mechanism has been proposed, that it follows a self-assembly and oriented attachment process.
