Molecular wet adhesion
Adhesion is a phenomenon that incorporates a number of physical and chemical forces. While it is seen as an interfacial effect, the complex contributions of physico-chemical forces lead to a range of interaction over which two surfaces influence each other. At the smallest length-scale, the ubiquitous dispersion forces and specific chemical groups dominate adhesion. Roughness confounds these contributions to adhesion and their influence reduced rapidly away from the surface. Real surfaces pose...[Show more]
