Application of Magnetically Simulated Microgravity for Preparation of Liquid and Solid Thin Films
Liquid thin films having 13–25-mm diameter of water, ethanol, benzene, etc., which cannot be prepared under the earth's surface gravity, were prepared on a metallic ring using magnetically simulated microgravity. In a magnetic field, poly(vinyl alcohol) and poly(acrylic acid) solid thin films of 20-mm diameter were prepared, for the first time, from liquid films of the respective aqueous solutions.
