Effects of surfactants on droplet spreading and drying rates in relation to foliar uptake






ACS Symposium Series (371): 77-89

Effects of surfactants on droplet spreading and drying rates in relation to foliar uptake

Various non-ionic organosilicone and organic surfactant solutions were compared by means of droplet contact angle, spread area and drying time on cuticle wax from Vicia faba Evergreen, mandarins Unshin and Eucalyptus botryoides. Several organosilicone solutions had leaf wetting and spreading capabilities far superior to the organic surfactant solutions. Surfactants were characterised further by their influence on the uptake of 2-deoxyglucose by V. faba, eucalypt and mandarin foliage.
