- E Chibowski, L Holysz - Langmuir, 1992 - ACS PublicationsThe 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 ...E Chibowski, R Perea-Carpio - Advances in colloid and interface science, 2002 - ElsevierThe 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 ...E Chibowski, F Gonzalez-Caballero - Langmuir, 1993 - ACS PublicationsTheoretical 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 ...E Chibowski - Advances in colloid and interface science, 2003 - ElsevierNature 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 ...E Chibowski - Journal of adhesion science and technology, 1992 - Taylor & FrancisA thin-layer wicking technique  and van Oss et al.'s  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 systemE Chibowski, A Waksmundzki - Journal of Colloid and Interface Science, 1978 - ElsevierAbstract 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 ...L Holysz, E Chibowski - Langmuir, 1992 - ACS PublicationsA 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 methodB Bilinski, E Chibowski - Powder Technology, 1983 - ElsevierAbstract 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 ...E Chibowski - Advances in colloid and interface science, 2007 - ElsevierProblems 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 ...E Chibowski, L Hołysz - Journal of adhesion science and …, 1997 - Taylor & FrancisA 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. ...
