This issue of the Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE features a self-healing coating technology that could prevent accidents caused by leaked fuel tanks used in war-fare. Another technology elucidates a coating mechanism that works in the same approach as that of the insect eating plant pitcher plants. This coating prevents bio-fouling in ship hulls. The next profile showcases how coating produced from agronomic wastes can be used to prevent agricultural produce from harmful pests. Another innovation talks about anti-fingerprint, anti-smudge, and anti-fouling coatings that can be used on touchscreens and displays. Finally, a color coating to customize the look and feel of traditional solar cells is discussed. The Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications and strategic insights on various coatings across industries. This encompasses protective and functional coatings such as antimicrobial coatings, food coatings, energy-saving coatings, smart glazing, hydrophilic, hydrophobic and super hydrophobic coatings, corrosion protection coatings, barrier coatings and paints. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research & innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thin films, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: Oleophobic, biomimicking, anti-fingerprint, self-healing, bioactive stressors
