One Line Description
With articles from world-renowned researchers, this book offers an extraordinary commentary on the burgeoning current research activity in contact angle and wettability

The information provided in this book should be of great interest and value to materials scientists, surface and chemical engineers as well as R&D, manufacturing, and quality control personnel in a host of industries and technological areas such as biomedical engineering, biotechnology, microfluidics, nanotechnology, energy, textiles, adhesive bonding, packaging, automotive, and aerospace.

The 17 research and review chapters comprising this book are divided into three parts: Part 1: Fundamental and General Aspects, Part 2: Wettability Modification, Part 3: Surface Free Energy and Adhesion.

The topics covered include: • wetting of solid walls and spontaneous capillary flow • “ordered water monolayer that does not completely wet water” at room temperature • Cheerios effect and its control by contact angle modulation • mathematical analysis of contact angle hysteresis • computational analysis of wetting and application to self-cleaning mechanisms • bubble adhesion to superhydrophilic surfaces • relationship between the roughness and oleophilicity of surfaces • liquid repellent amorphous carbon nanoparticle networks • mechanical durability of liquid repellent surfaces• superhydrophobic and superoleophobic biobased materials • laser ablation to render stainless steel superhydrophobic • RF plasma treatment of Neptune grass (Posidonia oceanica)to achieve superhydrophilic surfaces • combined photochemical and laser surface modifications to achieve liquid repellent textile surfaces • modification of paper/cellulose to control liquid wetting and adhesion • surface free energy of superhydrophobic materials • role of surface free energy in pharmaceutical tablet strength • why test inks cannot tell the whole truth about surface free energy of solids.
