Spreading dynamics of liquids and surfactant solutions on partially wettable hydrophobic substrates
The drop spreading of water and aqueous solutions of ethanol and nonionic surfactant on hydrophobic substrates (alkylsilane treated glass) have been investigated. For the low viscous liquids and solutions, the spreading on the surface of hydrophobic glass rod was also studied and compared to the drop spreading experiment. In both experiments, care was taken to ensure a minimum impact of inertial forces. The results for the aqueous systems show rapid initial spreading processes that abruptly...[Show more]
