About this book


This book describes key basic concepts in surface and clarifies fundamental issues that lead to misconceptions in wetting and contact angle interpretation. A set of contact angle measurement protocols is summarized and may be served as guidelines for future standardization in this field. The authors also discuss issues related to surface definitions and terminologies.
