Surface Tension

  title={Surface Tension},
I SHALL be obliged if you can find space for the accompanying translation of an interesting letter which I have received from a German lady, who with very homely appliances has arrived at valuable results respecting the behaviour of contaminated water surfaces. The earlier part of Miss Pockels' letter covers nearly the same ground as some of my own recent work, and in the main harmonizes with it. The later sections seem to me very suggestive, raising, if they do not fully answer, many important…

Understanding the role of re-entrant surface topography gives us new insights on the multitude of wetting scenarios beyond the standard Wenzel and Cassie–Baxter models.
A Thermostatic Chamber for X-Ray Studies of Thin Film Structures on Liquid Substrates
Abstract A universal thermostatic chamber has been designed for X-ray scattering studies of various types of adsorption layers at air–water and oil–water interfaces. The camera can be used both on a
The smallest space miners: principles of space biomining
As we aim to expand human presence in space, we need to find viable approaches to achieve independence from terrestrial resources. Space biomining of the Moon, Mars and asteroids has been indicated
Electrochemical Quantification of Corrosion Mitigation on Iron Surfaces with Gallium(III) and Zinc(II) Metallosurfactants.
Electrochemically the viability of gallium(III)- and zinc(II)-containing metallosurfactants [GaIII(LN2O3)] and [ZnII(Ln2O2)H2O] as mitigators for iron corrosion in saline and acidic media is quantified.
Electrohydrodynamic Assembly of Ambient Ion-Derived Nanoparticles to Nanosheets at Liquid Surfaces
We describe an ambient ion-based method to create free-standing metal nanosheets, which in turn are composed of nanoparticles of the corresponding metal. These nanoparticle-nanosheets (NP-NSs) were
The application of monolayer studies in the understanding of liposomal formulations.
Lipids: An Atomic Toolkit for the Endless Frontier.
Two waves of discovery and innovation in lipid materials are described: one historical and one still building, including lipid nanoparticles for COVID-19 mRNA vaccines and the generation of more arbitrary two-dimensional and three-dimensional structures.
