Terminology of Contact Angles

Contact Angle

The rapid pace and shear number of papers published in recent years on contact angles, wetting, and non-wetting surfaces has lend itself to misconceptions and misuses of terminology, measurement techniques, and interpretation of experimental results. Terms describing contact angles, wettability, super-hydrophobicity and similar others terminology are loosely used. In a new contribution entitled Contact Angles and Wettability: Towards Common and Accurate Terminology and published in Surface Innovations, international team of experts led by Prof. A. Marmur from Israel defines key terms used in relation to contact angles. These terms are defined precisely based on the accumulative knowledge from the surface chemistry community over the last decades. The definitions provided are scientifically rigorous to avoid any ambiguity and confusion; the clarity of definitions should make data interpretation and comparison easier for future contributions to journals.
