The spreading of a liquid droplet on flat surfaces is a well-understood phenomenon, but little is known about how liquids spread on a rough surface. When the surface roughness is of the nanoscopic length scale, the capillary forces dominate and the liquid droplet spreads by wetting the nanoscale textures that...

w A simple lattice model has been used to study the formation of multilayer films by fluids with orientation-dependent interactions on solid surfaces. The particles, composed of two halves (A and B) were allowed to take on one of six different orientations. The interaction between a pair of differently oriented neighboring particles was assumed to depend on the degrees to which their A and B parts overlap. Here, we have assumed that the AA interaction was strongly attractive, the AB interaction was set to zero, while the BB interaction was varied between 0 and −1.0. The ground state properties of the model have b...

By combining defocusing and grafting strategy, laser-induced graphene papers (LIGPs) are processed with continuously tunable wettability from superlyophilicity to superlyophobicity. Furthermore, three designable processes are developed for achieving LIGPs with variously patterned wettability, including hydrophilic arrays or channels, hydrophobic-to-hydrophilic gradients, and Janus for enabling unique functional surfaces, ranging from 3D cell cultivation to directional liquid transportation. AbstractFunctional surfaces with tunable and patternable wettability have attracted significant research interests because of remarkab...

Nanocellulose-based material properties are primarily dependent on the structural surface characteristics of its crystalline planes. Experimental measurements of the affinity of crystalline nanocellulose surfaces with water are scarce and challenging to obtain. Therefore, the relative hydrophilicity of different cellulose allomorphs crystalline planes is often inferred from qualitative assessments of their surface and the exposition of polar ...

Ecotoxicol Environ Saf. 2021 Sep 9;225:112766. doi: 10.1016/j.ecoenv.2021.112766. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTNatural adjuvants are novel options to reduce the doses of chemical herbicides. The aim of the current study was to examine the compositions and adjuvant effects of rosin and coconut oil on herbicides using a combination of indoor experiment and field trial. The GC-MS results showed that the main component of rosin was abietic acid (40.02%), and the main components of coconut oil were 2-pentanone, 4-hydroxy-4-methyl- (21.45%) and dodecanoic acid (14.59%). In greenhouse experiment, rosin showed a significant adjuv...

AbstractTwo-dimensional visualizations of point-source liquid spills in porous media were performed in a flat rectangular packed bed, emplaced on a robotized hexapod, to emulate roll/pitch marine oscillations. The extent to which the directional modulation of liquid gravity and the moving-bed inertial forces affect the liquid spills was the study's central aim. Spill morphology deviations were dictated by gravity force oscillations, while Coriolis/Euler/centrifugal forces were confined to secondary roles. Multiple gravity-driven liquid branching with departures from the longitudinal direction, not only boosted wetting but ...
