By K.L. Mittal(eds.)

The subject of wettabilty is very very important from either primary and utilized features. The functions of wettability variety from self-cleaning home windows to micro- and nanofluidics.

This e-book represents the cumulative knowledge of a contingent of world-class (researchers engaged within the area of wettability. within the previous few years there was super curiosity within the "Lotus Leaf impression" and in knowing its mechanism and the way to copy this impression for myriad functions. the subjects of superhydrophobicity, omniphobicity and superhydrophilicity are of a lot modern curiosity and those are coated intensive during this book.
