Work of adhesion is defined as a work required to separate two phases from each other.
Wenzel equation states that adding surface roughness will enhance the wettability caused by the chemistry of the surface.
Interactions at the material surface is influenced by the wettability of the material. Wettability measurements are done to evaluate biocompatibility.
Surface tension of blood is an important characteristic when protective materials are being evaluated.
Cell-biomaterial interactions are affected by the surface properties of the material such as surface chemistry, wettability and surface roughness.
Advancing and receding angles should be measured as the low contact angle hysteresis is also a requirement for superhydrophobicity.
Rheology studies the flow and deformation of the fluid. Interfacial rheology studies the same for interfacial layers.
