Influence of Volume Drop on Surface Free Energy of Glass

Abstract

The aim of the research was to determine how the drop size affects the contact angle values and determine its optimal size for further contact angle measurements and comparison of the contact angle values measured for three probe liquids (water, formamide, diiodomethane) on the glass surface using the: sessile drop and tilting plate methods. Next, using the measured contact angles, the total surface free energy and its components were determined from the van Oss et al. (Lifshitz-van der Waals acid- base component, LWAB), Owens-Wendt, Neumann and contact angle hysteresis (CAH) approaches. The studies showed, that drop size is very important for contact angle measurements and consequently, for surface free energy estimation.
