The effect of Surface roughness and wettability on biocompatibility of biomaterials and Medical devices.
Thomas Young was a physician and his most remarkable discoveries are related to vision and light rather than the behavior of liquids on surfaces
Surface free energy can be considered as the surface tension of a solid. Surface free energy is calculated through the contact angle measurements. By knowing the surface free energy of the solid, one can predict the behavior of any liquid on the surface.
Wilhelmy plate method can be used to measure contact angle.
OWRK is one of the most used surface free energy theories. It divides the interfacial interactions into two parts; polar and dispersive.
