2013). 2 Surface Treatment to Impart Hydrophobicity In order to impart hydrophobic properties to the surfaces of black silicon and black copper, these substrates were subjected to treatment with trichloro(1H,1H,2H,2H-­ perfluorooctyl)silane (PFTS) under desiccator or nitrogen glovebox conditions, with evaporation taking place for several hours in a low (10−3) bar vacuum conditions. This process deposits randomly oriented and self-assembled molecular monolayers (SAM) of PFTS onto the surface (Lapierre et al.

1998). 1 V versus SCE was shown to kill 70 % of cells adhered to the electrode surface, without producing changes in pH or generation of chlorine. 43 V resulted in 73 % desorption of cells resident on the electrode.
