This volume chronicles the proceedings of the 5th International Symposium on Contact Angle, Wettability and Adhesion, Toronto, Canada, June 2006. Wettability is of pivotal importance in many and varied arenas, ranging from mundane to micro-and nanofluidics to lithography to biomedical. It should be underscored that in the last years there has been burgeoning interest in replicating the so-called "Lotus Leaf Effect" to create superhydrophobic surfaces. This volume contains a total of 19 papers covering many facets of contact angle, wettability, and adhesion. All manuscripts were rigorously peer-reviewed and revised and edited before inclusion in this book. Concomitantly, this volume represents an archival publication of the highest standard.
This book (5th volume in the series) is divided into three parts: Part 1 - Contact Angle Measurements and Solid Surface Free Energy; Part 2 - Relevance of Wetting in Cleaning and Adhesion; and Part 3 - Superhydrophobic Surfaces. The topics covered include fundamental aspects of contact angle and its measurement, solidification contact angles of micro-droplets, microscopic wettability of wood call walls, dynamic vapor-liquid interfacial tension, surface free energy of polymeric materials, surface cleanliness evaluation from wettability measurements, wettability parameters affecting surface cleanability of stainless steel and textiles, wetting and adhesion in fibrous materials, wettability and adhesion of coatings, adhesion of hydrophobizing agents, modulation of surface properties of polymers, graft efficiency and adhesion, relevance of interfacial free energy in cell adhesion, various approaches to create superhydrophobic surfaces, and adsorption of surfactants on hydrophobic and superhydrophobic surfaces.

The topic of wettability (measured in terms of contact angle) is of tremendous interest from both fundamental and applied points of view, Wettability plays an essential role in many industrial processes, so an understanding of factors dictating wettability and how to modulate it is of paramount importance. In the last years there has been an explosive interest in superhydrophobic surfaces (i.e., surfaces with water contact angle of 150A Degrees or higher) because of their relevance/importance in many areas ranging from self-cleaning windows to nanofluidics. Also recently there has been heightened activity in the field of electrowetting.
Contact Angle, Wettability and Adhesion, Volume 6 is divided into four parts: Part 1: Fundamental Aspects; Part 2: Wettability Control/Modification; Part 3: Superhydrophobic Surfaces; and Part 4: Surface Free Energy and Relevance of Wettability in Adhesion. The topics covered include: a guide to the equilibrium contact angles maze: fundamental aspects of wetting of rough and chemically heterogeneous surfaces: work of adhesion for rock-oil-brine systems; Is the world basic?; wettability control/modification using various approaches; superhydrophobic surfaces and ways to impart superhydrophobicity; adsorption on superhydrophobic surfaces; solid surface energy determination; surface modification of different materials; relevance of wettability and adhesion aspects in a variety of reinforced composites. In essence, this volume reflects the cumulative wisdom of many active and renowned researchers and provides a commentary on contemporary research in the fascinating world of contact angles and wettability. This volume and its predecessors (5 volumes), containing bountiful information, will be of much value to anyone interested/involved in controlling wetting phenomena and their applications.
