A POSS-PMMA copolymer has been synthesised by conventional free-radical polymerisation reaction. Uniform electrospun fibres from this copolymer showed a water contact angle as high as 1651 with a sliding angle as low as 61. For the first time, we found that the electrospun fibres had a bundled nanofibril secondary structure with an ordered POSS morphology on the fibre surface.
