Plasma treatment is able to increase the wettability of most polymers. Hydrophobic recovery is often encountered which causes wettability to decrease.
Learn about the past and future development of biomaterials in regenerative medicine.
To better describe the real surfaces, different wetting states have been proposed. The most discussed are Wenzel state and Cassie-Baxter state.
Surface chemistry plays a significant part in terms of interactions with the human tissue.
Surface tension can be measured with force tensiometer using Du Noüy ring or Wilhelmy plate. Or with optical tensiometer using the pendant drop method.
