Measurement of the Hydrophobic Force in a Soft Matter System.


The hydrophobic attraction describes the well-known tendency for nonpolar molecules and surfaces to agglomerate in water, controlled by the reorganization of intervening water molecules to minimize disruption to their hydrogen bonding network. Measurements of the attraction between chemically hydrophobised solid surfaces have reported ranges varying from… (More)
