Molecular Mechanisms of Hydrophobic Transitions

Yaminsky, Vassili


This review article provides new insights into the molecular mechanisms of hydrophobicity that emerge within the phenomenological framework of classical capillarity. The thermodynamic analysis of surface phenomena via the Gibbs adsorption equation that forms the basis of the experimental physical chemistry of liquid-fluid interfaces extends with its rigorous implications towards the wetting of solid surfaces. Observations on equilibrium contact angles, contact angle hysteresis, and the dynamics...[Show more]
