The nucleation always initiates from the trijunction and propagates into the drop volume with different structural morphologies determined by temperatures and surface hydrophobicity of the substrate.
Seven strains were selected from the hydrophobicity test: three with high hydrophobicity (MAt35, MAt42, and MAt43) and four with medium hydrophobicity (MAt32, MAt100, GAtB01 and GAt7) (Fig.
Actually the condition of soil water repellency or hydrophobicity, is usually associated with a coating of soil particles by hydrophobic organic substances.
Based on this, the relationship between hydrophobicity and optical haze has been studied.
The paste samples were utilized to measure surface hydrophobicity and surface reactive sulfhydryl content.
Powder 2702 cost-effectively improves the key properties of cement-based formulations, such as adhesion and hydrophobicity (water repellence), product developers contend, and achieves higher performance in comparison to both traditional 2K (two-component) systems and other polymers available for waterproofing mortars.
The effectiveness of a coating's barrier performance is impacted by its permeability which, in turn, is a function of its hydrophobicity, porosity and occlusive properties.
Further, KCC-32 displayed potential probiotic characteristics including resistant to low pH, bile salt tolerance, auto-aggregation and hydrophobicity.
Solid surfaces are classified in terms of hydrophilicity or hydrophobicity that describes the wettability by water.
The adsorption mechanisms can be contributed by hydrophobicity interaction at the interface occurs between NR and SGC.
Cell surface hydrophobicity was determined by the bacterial adhesion to hydrocarbons assay according to Rosenberg et al.
The biofloc protein surface hydrophobicity was measured using 1-anilino-8-naphthalenesulfonate (ANS) as a hydrophobic probe (Hayakawa & Nakai, 1985).
It is believed that both hydrophobicity and hydrophilicity can be amplified by the roughness of a solid surface, so there have been lots of artificially roughened substrates which are experimentally constructed to be strongly hydrophilic or hydrophobic (Bico et al.
Changes in conditions optimal for bacterial adhesion to host surfaces such as surface hydrophobicity may interrupt bacterial adhesion, and subsequent biofilm formation.
Since the 1970s, scanning electron microscope (SEM) studies have shown that the hydrophobicity of leaf surface is related to its microstructure.
