Super-hydrophobic nickel and nickel-cobalt alloy coatings with micro-nano structure were successfully electrodeposited on copper substrates with one and two steps electrodeposition. Surface morphology, wettability and corrosion 

resistance were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, water contact angle measurements, electrochemical impedanc spectroscopy (EIS) and potentiodynamic polarization curves. The results showed that the wettability of the micro-nano Ni and Ni-Co films varied from super-hydrophilicity to super-hydrophobicity by exposure of the surface to air at room temperature. The corrosion results revealed the positive effect of hydrophobicity on corrosion resistance of Ni coating (~10 times) and Ni-Co coating (~100 times) in comparison with their fresh coatings. The results showed that super-hydrophobic nickel coating had higher corrosion resistance than super-hydrophobic nickel-cobalt coating.
