CALL FOR PAPERS



SECOND INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM

ON CONTACT ANGLE, WETTABILITY AND ADHESION

To be held June 21-23, 2000; Robert Treat Hotel; Newark, NJ



This symposium will be the follow on to the one held in 1992 in honor of Professor Robert Good as part of the American Chemical Society meeting in San Francisco. The contact angle experiment has found wide application as a method of determining energetics of surfaces. This in turn has a profound effect on the wettability and adhesion of liquids and coatings to surfaces. This symposium will be concerned with both the fundamental and applied aspects of contact angle measurements. Issues such as the applicability and validity of various measurement techniques and the proper theoretical framework for the analysis of contact angle data will be of prime concern. In addition, a host of applications of the contact angle technique will be explored including but not limited to: wettability of powders, fibers, wood products, inks, papers, polymers and monolayers. Further focus will be on the use of contact angle data in evaluating surface modification procedures, determining relevance of wettability to adhesion, the role of wettability in bioadhesion, ophthalmology, prosthesis and in the control of dust in mining and milling applications. The primary focus of this symposium will be to provide a forum for the discussion of cutting edge advancements in the field and to review and consolidate the accomplishments which have been achieved thus far.
