Use of the Washburn equation for surface free energy determination

Chibowski, L Holysz - Langmuir, 1992 - ACS Publications
The thin-layer wicking technique was used to determine the solid surface free energy 
components for thin-layer chromatography silica (Merck) by the Washburn equation. It has 
been found that wick-wetting is a reproducible process and the results of the wetting rates ...

Problems of contact angle and solid surface free energy determination

Chibowski, R Perea-Carpio - Advances in colloid and interface science, 2002 - Elsevier
The current general problems of formulation and determination of surface free energy are 
discussed. So far several theories and approaches have been proposed, but formulation of 
surface and interfacial free energy, as regards its components, is still a very debatable ...

Theory and practice of thin-layer wicking

ChibowskiF Gonzalez-Caballero - Langmuir, 1993 - ACS Publications
Theoretical considerations and experimental results are presented for the wicking proceee 
of a solid thin porow layer. Thie method was wed for the solid surface free energy 
determinations. The commercial silica covered glaaa plah (Merck), used in thin-layer ...

Surface free energy of a solid from contact angle hysteresis

Chibowski - Advances in colloid and interface science, 2003 - Elsevier
Nature of contact angle hysteresis is discussed basing on the literature data (Colloids Surf. A 
189 (2001) 265) of dynamic advancing and receding contact angles of n-alkanes and n-
alcohols on a very smooth surface of 1, 1, 2,-trichloro-1, 2, 2,-trifluoroethane (FC-732) film ...

Solid surface free energy components determination by the thin-layer wicking technique

Chibowski - Journal of adhesion science and technology, 1992 - Taylor & Francis
A thin-layer wicking technique [1] and van Oss et al.'s [2] approach to interfacial free energy 
interactions were tested to determine the solid surface free energy components: apolar 
Lifshitz-van der Waals, yl, wy; and polar, electron donor, γ-y, and electron acceptor, γ+ y. ...

A relationship between the zeta potential and surface free energy changes of the sulfur/< i> n</i>-heptane—water system

Chibowski, A Waksmundzki - Journal of Colloid and Interface Science, 1978 - Elsevier
Abstract Measurements of the zeta potential of sulfur in doubly distilled water were carried 
out by the streaming potential technique. The zeta potential of sulfur changes from− 25.6 to− 
120 mV if the sulfur surface is wetted with n-heptane. The relationship between the ...

Surface free energy components of. alpha.-alumina from thin-layer wicking

L Holysz, E Chibowski - Langmuir, 1992 - ACS Publications
A thin-layer wicking technique (Giese, RF; Costanzo, PM; van Oss, CJ Phys. Chem. Miner. 
1991, 17,611) and van Oss et al.'s approach to interfacial free energy interactions were 
applied for determination of the (r-Al2O3 surface free energy components. For this ...

The determination of the dispersion and polar free surface energy of quartz by the elution gas chromatography method

B Bilinski, E Chibowski - Powder Technology, 1983 - Elsevier
Abstract The adsorption isotherms of n-octane, n-propanol and n-butanol on brasilian quartz 
were determined by the elution gas chromatography method. From the isotherms, the 
horizontal orientation of the hydrocarbon molecules and the vertical orientation of the ...

On some relations between advancing, receding and Young's contact angles

Chibowski - Advances in colloid and interface science, 2007 - Elsevier
Problems of experimental determination and theoretical verification of equilibrium contact 
angles are discussed basing on the literature data. A relationship between the advancing 
and receding contact angles versus the equilibrium contact angle is described and then ...

On the use of Washburn's equation for contact angle determination

Chibowski, L Hołysz - Journal of adhesion science and …, 1997 - Taylor & Francis
A systematic study on the possibility of Young's contact angle determination from 
Washburn's equation was performed using the so-called thin-layer wicking technique in 
which the rate of penetration of a liquid into the porous layer of a solid is measured. ...
