Summary of "A molecular-dynamics study of sliding liquid nanodrops: Dynamic contact angles and the pearling transition."

That the behavior of sliding drops at the nanoscale mirrors that seen in macroscopic experiments, that the local microscopic contact angle is velocity dependent in a way that is consistent with the molecular-kinetic theory (MKT), and that observations at this scale shed light on the pearling transition seen with larger drops.

Atomistic Study of Dynamic Contact Angles in CO2-Water-Silica System.

The dynamic wetting for the CO2-water-silica system occurring in deep reservoirs is complex because of the interactions among multiple phases. This work aims to quantify the contact angle of CO2-water...

Contact angle hysteresis of a water droplet on a hydrophobic fuel cell surface.

The contact angle hysteresis is an important parameter influencing the micro-size droplet wetting on the solid surface. In this study, a theoretical method for calculating the contact angle hysteresis...

Dynamic behavior of nanoscale liquids in graphene liquid cells revealed by in situ transmission electron microscopy.

Recent advances in graphene liquid cells for in situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) have opened many opportunities for the study of materials transformations and chemical reactions in liquids ...

Contact-line fluctuations and dynamic wetting.

The thermal fluctuations of the three-phase contact line formed between a liquid and a solid at equilibrium can be used to determine key parameters that control dynamic wetting.

Heterochromatin protein HP1α gelation dynamics revealed by solid-state NMR spectroscopy.

Heterochromatin protein 1α (HP1α) undergoes liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) and forms liquid droplets and gels in vitro, properties that also appear to be central to its biological function in...
