Experimental research on wetting in polymer films is a subject that is reaching maturity. We review progress from the past few years in research into the influence of a boundary in polymer blends, concentrating largely on the wetting transition, and the growth of wetting layers, where we pay particular attention to blends in which hydrodynamic flow plays a dominant role. A summary of work over the same period concerning the dewetting of polymer films is also included, along with a discussion of… CONTINUE READING
