Abstract Graphene-water interaction has been under scrutiny ever since graphene discovery and realization of its exceptional properties. Several computational and experimental reports exist that have tried to look into the interactions involved, but the response of small graphene to water in a water-based environment requires further investigation. Several computational analyses based on first principle calculations and Molecular Dynamics (MD) have reported graphene to be hydrophobic. Meanwhile…

Thickness-Dependent Hydrophobicity of Epitaxial Graphene.
TLDR
This article addresses the much debated question whether the degree of hydrophobicity of single- layer graphene (1LG) is different from that of double-layer graphene (2LG) by employing chemical force microscopy with a probe rendered hydrophobic by functionalization with octadecyltrichlorosilane (OTS).
What is the contact angle of water on graphene?
TLDR
It is shown that a variation of the contact angle from 90° on graphite to 127° on graphene would imply that both of the first two carbon layers of graphite contribute approximately the same interaction energy with water, which is incompatible with the short-range nature of the interaction between water and this substrate.
