2014 AIP Publishing LLC. The oscillations of free-falling drops with size range from pl to μl have been used to measure the transient shear viscosity and the dynamic surface tension of shear-thinning fluids on the timescale of 10 -5 -10 -2 s. The method is first validated with Newtonian fluids. For a given surface tension, the lower and upper limits for accurate measurement of the viscosity are determined as a function of drop size. The dynamic properties of two types of shear-thinning fluids with varying viscoelasticity are reported: aqueous suspensions of the antifungal drug griseofulvin and of the organic light-emitting diode material poly( 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene): polystyrene-sulphonate. In both cases, the free-falling drop retains the high-shear viscosity.. ...
Considering surfactant solutions at concentrations exceeding the CMC, another relaxation process besides diffusion occurs, also affecting the dynamic surface tension. The latter equilibration process concerns a micellisation/demicellisation process, representing the disintegration of micelles into monomers. The micellisation kinetics are accounted for by adding a single source term to the diffusion equation of the free monomers. In the present paper the integration of the diffusion equation is avoided by using the concept of the diffusion penetration depth. Nevertheless, when this approximation is made, good agreement is achieved between experiment and theory for micellar Triton X-100 solutions. Moreover, it follows that diffusion of micelles may not be neglected. ...

There are a lot of surface tensiometers with different measuring methods, made by different manufactories. And quality and working accuracy of these surface tensiometers are quite different from each other. How to choose the most suitable surface tensiometer for us is more important.
Thus the applied force is acting tangential to the surface of the film (remembering we are looking from the top, down onto the film). The surface tension force opposes this action by generating an equal but opposite force, tangential to the surface and also within the plane of the paper, thus the system is in a state of equilibrium. The value of the surface tension is constant, but the opposing force generated is larger because the area has increased and the surface tension force is defined as surface tension multiplied by length ...
l fabric, its shape will also be affected by the surface tension at the solid/liquid interface. If the surface tension in the liquid is lower, the droplet forms a more ellipsoidal shape. The following are the surface tensions for some liquid substances: SURFACE TENSION SUBSTANCE water 73 dynes/cm mercury 480 dynes/cm benzene 28 dynes/cm ethanol 22 dynes/cm Because of its lower surface tension, ethanol will flow and form a larger area of contact (surface) with a solid than with water. Mercury, with its very high surface tension, does not flow but breaks into droplets if given the opportunity. Surface active agents interfere with the ability of the molecules of a substance to interact with one another and, thereby, lower the surface tension of the substance. Surfactants used in industrial applications usually cause a dramatic decrease in surface tension when used at low concentration. Chemically, surfactants are amphipathic molecules. That is, they have two distinctly different characteristics, ...
On the scale of ocean and river flows, surface tension has a negligible effect. It is not included in fluid mechanics models of the ocean or rivers. In practice, surface tension effects apply only on much smaller scales. The effect of salinity on density, on the other hand, can affect the hydrostatics and the dynamics, and is usually taken into account ...

The effect of cotton dust on the surface tension of the surfactant dipalmitoyl-lecithin was assessed. The surface tension of synthetic L-alpha-dipalmitoyl-lecithin (DPL) films were measured in the presence and absence of known concentrations of the cotton dust using a Wilhelmy balance. Surface tension was plotted against surface area for four consecutive cycles until time equilibrium was attained.
Definition== Surface tension is a property of liquid surfaces caused by cohesion. Cohesion is the physical property resulting from the intermolecular forces attracting like-molecules. The molecules on the surface of a liquid have a greater attraction to like-molecules around them than to unlike-molecules. Molecules on the surface of a liquid experience an inward force balanced by the resistance to compression. Another important point in understanding surface tension is the liquid molecules seek the lowest possible surface area. This is the reason that liquids form droplets on hydrophobic surfaces. The interface of lke-molecules has a lower energy than the interface of unlike-molecules, therefore surface molecules seek to have as many like-molecule interfaces as possible resulting in the lowest surface area. ==Units== Surface tension (,math>\gamma,/math>) has dimensions of force per unit length, ,math>\frac{F} {L},/math>. ==References== http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cohesion_%28chemistry%29 ...
A method of coating an implantable medical device, such as a stent, is disclosed. The method includes applying a formulation on a first polymer layer containing a therapeutic substance to form a second layer. The formulation can contain a highly hydrophobic polymer or a solvent which is a poor solvent for the drug or the polymer of the first layer. The formulation can have a low surface tension value or a high Weber number value.
The surface tension of 2-amino-6-chloro-4-nitrophenol was determined by following EU method A.5 (Surface Tension), the OECD guideline 115 (Surface Tension of Aqueous Solutions) and the GLP. Determination of surface tension was carried out with digital tensiometer, at a temperature of 20⁰C. Three solutions at 90, 230 and 450 mg/L were prepared by dilution with distilled water in volumetric glassware. All the solutions were thermostated at 20.0 ± 0. 5°C and then tested. Three measurements were performed for each solution at 20°C. A new analysis was also performed on a 405 mg/L sample solution in water (corresponding to the 90% of the saturation solubility) as requested by the OJEC A5 method. Surface tension of 2-amino-6-chloro-4-nitrophenol is lower than 60 mN/m for the water saturated solution (which is lower than 1 g/L) and for the 90% of the saturation solubility and borderline for the half saturated solution. According to the interpretation of the results suggested in the used method ...

where σ12 is the surface or interfacial tension (see Surface and Interfacial Tension) on the boundary between phases 1 and 2, p1 and p2 are the pressures in the phases. The pressure is higher in the phase to which the concavity of the interface is presented. For a plane interface, H=0 and pσ=0. Capillary phenomena include various cases of equilibrium and flow of fluid surface under the action of surface tension forces and of external forces, primarily gravity. In the simplest case when the external forces are absent, e.g., under weightlessness conditions, a limited fluid volume takes the shape of a sphere due to surface tension forces. This state corresponds to a stable equilibrium of the fluid since a sphere has the minimum surface and, consequently, the minimum surface energy. As shown in Figure 1, when the liquid (1) comes in contact with the gas vapor (2) and the solid (3), the shape of the free liquid surface depends on wetting. Interaction of surface tension forces at the liquid-gas ...

Binary methanol/water mixture bubble point tests involving three samples of fine-mesh, stainless steel screens as porous liquid acquisition devices are presented in this article. Contact angles are measured as a function of methanol mass fraction using the Sessile Drop technique. Pretest predictions are based on a Langmuir isotherm fit. Predictions and data match for methanol mole fractions greater than 50% when pore diameters are based on pure liquid tests. For all three screens, bubble point is shown to be a maximum at a methanol mole fraction of 50%. Model and data are in disagreement for mole fractions less than 50%, which is attributed to variations between surface and bulk fluid properties. A critical Zisman surface tension value of 23.2 mN/m is estimated, below which contact angles can be assumed to be zero. Solid/vapor and solid/liquid interfacial tensions are also estimated using the equation of state analysis from Neumann and Good. Published 2013 American Institute of Chemical ...

Thin polymer films are used in many applications such as paint, paper coatings and electronic devices. For these applications, it is important to have knowledge about the film formation process, since it affect the film morphology and the morphology is important for the applications.One method for studying film formation in situ is fluorescence microscopy. By labeling a target molecule or particle with a fluorophore, the targets movements can be traced as the solvent evaporates [1-3]. If information gained from studies of particle movements during film formation and wet state behavior are combined, information about the film formation process can be obtained. Examination of the final film surfaces with regular light microscopy and AFM gives additional information about the film formation.These methods have been used for studying the formation of negatively charged latex films. It was shown that the films are greatly affected by adding positively charged surfactants [4-5]. Since latex is a ...
Ideally, in a chemical flooding process, one would like to inject a surfactant solution that has good solubility at the relevant conditions, ultralow interfacial tension (efficient oil mobilisation) and low loss of surfactant (better economics) in the porous medium. The key question is - can you have low loss of surfactant, i.e. low retention, at ultralow interfacial tension?. To answer this question, we have undertaken a systematic study of surfactant solubility, phase behaviour, interfacial tension and retention as a function of salinity for a given surfactant formulation. The idea is to explore the interrelationship between these properties and find the best condition(s) for combined low interfacial tension and low retention in a surfactant flooding process.. For the investigated surfactant formulation, ultra-low interfacial tensions (,0.01 mN/m) can be found in the Winsor III region at optimal salinity. The aqueous solution at optimal salinity is, however, turbid, and retention values are ...
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Catherine Pearson.. Oppositely charged polyelectrolyte/surfactant mixtures control the properties of many of the consumer products that we use in our everyday lives. While work has been carried out to understand the properties of these mixtures under dynamic conditions relevant to processing and applications [1-2], there is a growing awareness that also the static properties of such mixtures are strongly influenced by non-equilibrium effects [3-4]. We have worked over the last years to relate the interfacial properties of these systems to different non-equilibrium processes in the bulk and at interfaces [5-13]. In this seminar, it is described how non-equilibrium effects not only influence but in fact dominate the interfacial properties of such mixtures. Our work focuses on the strongly interacting systems Pdadmac/SDS and NaPSS/DTAB measured using a range of bulk and surface-sensitive techniques including neutron reflectometry, ellipsometry ...
Various renowned institutions throughout the world have evaluated the properties and abilities of the Amezcua Bio Discs.*+ Among the evaluations and certifications is the verdict that the Amezcua Bio Discs can reduce water surface tension value. This in turn makes water more hydratious, which therefore improves the biocompatibility of water molecules with the bodys cells. Basically, this means your body can absorb more of what it needs from your drinking water. Water treated with Amezcua Bio Discs also produces beautiful and perfectly shaped water crystals, an indication of water with high energy levels and good quality. The beautiful and good water crystals pass through body cell walls easier, enabling the body to deliver and absorb nutrients and minerals into body cells quickly. Further tests have indicated that the disc has a profound positive effect on individuals at energy level ...
An article published in Nature in 1999 observed that when a large amount of mist water was collected in a container, organic compounds found in water were effective in reducing the waters surface tension, which led scientists to conclude that the reduced surface tension also affected the formation of mist droplets. However, Laaksonen and his colleagues noticed that the findings contained a shortcoming which the authors of the article hadnt taken into consideration.. "Compounds that reduce surface tension - surfactants - are of course effective on the water surface. If water in a laboratory container is broken down into tiny droplets, the waters surface area grows significantly. Consequently, the concentration of organic compounds on the water surface becomes so low that it may no longer have much effect on the waters surface tension," Laaksonen says.. "According to theoretical calculations, however, certain kinds of "super" surfactants could affect the formation of cloud droplets, but up ...
The porous ceramic membranes described are used in the osmotic tensiometer, a humidity sensor to be applied in soil environments. This is the subject of part III. This application field implies the measurement of humidities close to 100%. Humidity sensors for this range are and will be an essential element of agriculture and horticulture in a world of increasing prices for clean, potable water. However, no adequate method exists yet when considering criteria as response time, endurance, reproducability and ease of use. A novel technology using a combination of dedicated polymer, a state-of-the-art ceramic membrane and a sensitive pressure transducer may give the desired result. This is the osmotic tensiometer. In chapter 9 several aspects of response time for application of the osmotic tensiometer under realistic field conditions are quantified in a transport model. This model is validated with experiments using a novel design of the osmotic tensiometer. Chapter 10 deals with the favorable ...

Key study: The test was performed according to the EEC Method A.5. with GLP standars. It was not possible to measure the surface tension of the test substance itself because of its rapid reaction with water and hence the surface tension of the hydrolysis products was measured. The surface tension was determined at 25 ± 0.5 ºC and the measures were performed with two 90% saturated solutions. The time between preparation of the solution and the measurement was 75 minutes (test 1) and 90 minutes (test 2). The surface tension of a 90% saturated aqueous solution of the hydrolysis products of OS-2200 is 61.2 mN/m at 25 ± 0.5ºC. OS-2200 is not considered as being a surface active material at 25ºC ...

Waters surface tension (the ability of a substance to stick to itself) makes it an excellent substance to float heavy objects upon. Water not only sticks to itself, but also to other surfaces, and this allows it to move against gravity, which is very important to plants when transporting water form the soil to their leaves. This upward motion is known as capillarity or capillary movement.. PROCEDURE: This exercise consists of two parts. First, the students will discover how water flows and secondly, the students will discover how many drops of water they can put on a penny. ...
The water reducing properties of solutions containing small amounts of sodium n-dodecylbenzene-sulfonate and acetone are studied. Water reductions up to 28% are obtained in mortars composed by 30% cement and 70% graded sand. Sorptivity coefficients vary between 78 and 380 g m-2 s-1 2 (no admixture: 744 g m-2 s-1 2). Slump loss rates of mortars with admixture are similar to those of the admixturefree ones. Compressive strength after 28 days is roughly 50% higher for the mortars with admixture. Surface tension measurements are used to explain the unexpected efficiency of these solutions. © 1994 ...

This thesis is made up of two separate papers. The first paper evaluates a number of thermodynamic and empirical models estimating mixture properties required to predict the migration and entrapment in the subsurface of nonaqueous phase liquids released due to railroad tank car accidents. The properties include density, viscosity, surface and interfacial tension. Several models are used to predict pure compounds properties, similar mixture properties, and dissimilar mixture properties. Models for estimating density and surface tension are the most accurate with errors for similar compound mixtures close to or fewer than 10% compared to measured values. Viscosity models did the next best, with errors between 15 and 33%. However, simple linear models do not work well for viscosity because of sensitivity to temperature. Interfacial tension proves to be the most difficult property to estimate, in particular for dissimilar mixtures. Interfacial tension is very sensitivity to mutual solubility ...
One GLP study was performed in order to determine the surface tension of an aqueous solution of ISOPENTYRATE according to OECD 115 and EU method A.5, using the ring method. Seven readings were recorded, and the mean value was retained, corrected with calibration factor from water. The surface tension of an aqueous solution of ISOPENTYRATE (90% of the saturation solubility) was determined to be 65.7 mN/m at 20 °C. Based on the criteria as outlined in the EC Guideline (a substance is considered as surface active if surface tension , 60mN/m in the conditions of the method) and the results of this study, ISOPENTYRATE has to be considered as a non-surface active substance ...
There is disclosed a technique for tightening threaded fasteners in which values of offset torque, initial tension rate relative to angle, final tension rate relative to angle and other joint related factors are empirically determined by instrumenting a plurality of fasteners of the type ultimately to be tightened. In one embodiment, torque and angle are monitored during tightening. Calculations are conducted, while tightening, to determine the tension prevailing in the bolt at a particular angle of advance. By using the calculated tension value and the particular angle of advance, an instantaneous position of threading advance on the tension-angle curve of the fastener is established. From this instantaneous position, it is determined how much greater angle of advance or how much torque is required to tighten the fasteners to a final desired tension value. The same technique may also be used merely to monitor tightening which is terminated by a different tightening strategy. A number of quality control
Drainage of liquid from the bubble walls under the influence of gravity acts to reduce film thickness and makes the film more fragile. Hence, the foam should break. This is not the case owing to the Maragoni effect. The Maragoni effect applies to liquids moving under the influence of a surface tension gradient. As films drain, surfactant molecules become concentrated in the lower regions of the film, leading to a lower surface tension, relative to the upper regions. The higher surface tension in the upper regions thus tends to counteract downward flow. Of course, the foam can be broken by the action of chemical antifoams ...
The present invention comprises a method of chemical-mechanical polishing of a surface on a semiconductor substrate by providing a fixed-abrasive polishing pad; providing a surface to be polished; and providing a chemical polishing solution containing a surface tension-lowering agent that lowers the surface tension of the solution from the nominal surface tension of water to a surface tension that sufficiently wets a hydrophobic surface to be polished such that chemical-mechanical polishing is accomplished. The present invention also comprises pad improvements that mechanically sweep the polishing solution under the pad or that receive polishing solution from the back of the pad such that a tangential and radial shear is placed on the polishing solution as it flows away from the pad.

For several years it has been used increasingly successful for manual and automated cleaning of medical devices in hospitals and surgeries. ...
Sartorius Low Retention Tips have an extremely even and durable liquid-repellent surface for optimising the flow of the liquid while dispensing, for optimum sample recovery. Liquids with low surface tension, like detergents, slide easily off of the inner surface of the tip, leaving very little residue behind. This Low Retention feature is thus very useful in the following applications, where such viscous, detergent containing, liquids are often pipetted: PCR, real-time PCR, cloning, SDS-PAGE and other nucleic acid or protein analysis methods.. ...
Actin-myosin microfilament bundles or stress-fibers are the principal tension-generating structures in the cell. Their mechanical properties are critical for cell shape, motion, and interaction with other cells and extracellular matrix, but were so far difficult to access in a living cell. Here we propose a microfabricated two-component setup for direct tension measurement on a peripheral bundle within an intact cell. We used 3-D substrates made of silicon elastomer to elevate the cell making the filament bundle at its border accessible from the side, and employed an ultra-soft (spring constant 0.78 nN mu m(-1)) epoxy-based cantilever for mechanical probing. With this setup we were able for the first time to measure the tension in peripheral actin bundles in living primary fibroblasts spread on a rigid substrate.

Moisture that is left in the soil, along with hygroscopic moisture and water vapour, after the gravitational water has drained off. Capillary moisture is held by surface tension (known in the US as water potential) as a film of moisture on the surface of soil particles and peds, and as minute bodies of water filling part of the pore space between particles. Curved water surfaces or menisci (singular: meniscus) form bridges across the pores at the boundaries between their water-filled and air-filled parts. Capillary moisture may move through the soil under the influence of surface-tension forces (see capillary action) and some of it may be used by plants. ...
Water content was monitored daily to a depth of 120 cm using a site-calibrated neutron probe with a standard error of less than 0.03 cm3/cm3, which is within the acceptable tolerance range (Hignett and Evett, 2002). Tension was recorded with Soilspec tensiometers (SoilSpec Tensiometer System, Model SST101G, NH & TS Electronics, Australia) connected to a HOBO logger (Onset Computer Corporation, MA02532, USA) at 15-min intervals to an accuracy of within ± 0.1 kPa at 30, 60 and 90 cm depths. The drainage measurements were monitored for a total period of 16 days.. Sample preparation and laboratory measurements On completion of the drainage measurements, disturbed soil samples were obtained for various laboratory tests at depths of 30, 60 and 90 cm. The samples were air-dried and ground to pass a 2 mm sieve. Particle size distribution (PSD) and textural class were determined using the hydrometer method and USDA textural classification, respectively. Dry bulk density (BD) was determined from the core ...

This little tip seems to not be widely known, but if you mix water with dishwashing detergent, you create a very effective insect poison. I have seen it work instantly on wasps, and on ants and flies after a few seconds.. It has the added bonus that detergent is not harmful to us, and you can squirt this around the house, on plates, on pets by accident without any harm, and on kitchen surfaces or shelves. After discovering this, I looked into the science behind it: Insects do not breathe the same way that we do. Rather than lungs, they run a liquid over narrow channels along their shells to pick up oxygen, and the liquid is held in these channels by surface tension. Detergent breaks the surface tension of these liquids, so they cannot breathe.. Hope that helps!. ...
Abstract: We consider the motion of a viscous compressible heat conducting fluid in ${\Bbb R}^3$ bounded by a free surface which is under surface tension and constant exterior pressure. Assuming that the initial velocity is sufficiently small, the initial density and the initial temperature are close to constants, the external force, the heat sources and the heat flow vanish, we prove the existence of global-in-time solutions which satisfy, at any moment of time, the properties prescribed at the initial moment.

Feedback control of photoresponsive fluid interfaces by Josua Grawitter and Holger Stark Photoresponsive surfactants provide a unique microfluidic driving mechanism. Since they switch between two molecular shapes under illumination and thereby affect surface tension of fluid interfaces, Marangoni flow along the interface occurs. To describe the dynamics of the surfactant mixture at a planar interface, we formulate diffusion-advection-reaction equations for both surfactant densities. They also include adsorption from and desorption into the neighboring fluids and photoisomerization by light. We then study how the interface responds when illuminated by spots of light. Switching on a single light spot, the density of the switched surfactant spreads in time and assumes an exponentially decaying profile in steady state. Simultaneously, the induced radial Marangoni flow reverses its flow direction from inward to outward. We use this feature to set up specific feedback rules, which couple the advection ...
