9781118472927: Advances in Contact Angle, Wettability and Adhesion, Volume One

The topic of wettabilty is extremely important from both fundamental and applied aspects. The applications of wettability range from self-cleaning windows to micro- and nanofluidics.

This book represents the cumulative wisdom of a contingent of world-class (researchers engaged in the domain of wettability. In the last few years there has been tremendous interest in the "Lotus Leaf Effect" and in understanding its mechanism and how to replicate this effect for myriad applications. The topics of superhydrophobicity, omniphobicity and superhydrophilicity are of much contemporary interest and these are covered in depth in this book.

From the Back Cover:

With 22 articles from world-renowned researchers, this book offers an extraordinary commentary on contemporary research activity in contact angle and wettability

The history of modern contact angle and wetting can be traced back to the seminal paper by Thomas Young,"An Essay on the Cohesion of Fluids," published in 1805. However, the first paper on the subject was written by Galileo Galilei in 1612 when he wrote "Bodies that Stay Atop of Water, or Move in It."

Interest in wettability is far-reaching as it plays an extremely important role in many areas of human endeavor, ranging from high-tech (microelectronics, micro- and nanofluidics, MEMS and NEMS, and biomedical devices, for example) to everyday applications (e.g., washing of clothes and spraying of insecticides/pesticides on agricultural products).

The 22 articles comprising this volume originate from an invited conference held in Quebec City in 2012 and showcase many of the world's foremost specialists, providing their latest research results. The book's 22 chapters are arranged into four parts: Fundamental Aspects; Superhydrophobic Surfaces; Wettability Modification; and Wettability and Surface Free Energy.

The topics discussed include: contact angle hysteresis on heterogeneous surfaces and in multiphase systems; fundamental understanding of drops wettability behavior; computational aspects of self-cleaning surface mechanisms; utility of imaginary contact angles in the characterization of wettability on rough surfaces; determination of surface free energy at the nanoscale via atomic force microscopy; superhydrophobicity and its assessment criteria; wettability modification techniques for different materials; effects of cold RF plasma treatment on the germination rate of plant seeds; wettability of wood; wettability of the DPPC bilayer; wettability, contact angles, and surface free energy of solids; influence of surface free energy on the friction coefficient between a tire and road surface.

About the Author:

Kashmiri Lal Mittal was employed by the IBM Corporation from 1972 through 1993. Currently, he is teaching and consulting worldwide in the broad areas of adhesion as well as surface cleaning. He has received numerous awards and honors including the title of doctor honoris causa from Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, Lublin, Poland. He is the editor of more than 110 books dealing with adhesion measurement, adhesion of polymeric coatings, polymer surfaces, adhesive joints, adhesion promoters, thin films, polyimides, surface modification, surface cleaning, and surfactants. Dr. Mittal is also the Founding Editor of the journal Reviews of Adhesion and Adhesives.
