Abstract:

The nature of reaction of low-molecular substances and polymers with a solid surface is highly varied. That difference lies in the fact that polymer wetting of a solid surface is connected with a change in the configuration of polymer chains, which requires additional energy consumption. That is why there can be no analogy in the orders of energy magnitudes concerning the wettability of solid surfaces with low-molecular hydrocarbons and polymers. The concepts of hydrophilic and hydrophobic nature are insufficient to evaluate the capacity of wetting solid surfaces with polymers. Author
