behaviour of water in hydrophobic enviorment
« on: December 23, 2007, 01:24:19 AM »


how does water behave in an highly hydrophobic enviorment?? both in micro-scale level and marco-level??

Water behaves as water. Hydrophobic is a term relating the behavior of other substances in water.

But the question does make sense. For example - teflon is highly hydrophobic, how does water behave in a teflon bottle? That'll be macroscale. If you will make fabric from thin teflon fibers and you will sprinkle it with water, you will have microscale.

I guess that does make sense. I guess when I went to basic chemistry I was think of things in solutions of water. But I guess the question does imply that is not the case. I do not know how to read or write.

It will tend to minimize interactions with the hydrophobic region as much as possible.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

hi

well one of my friend suggested that water behaves as vapour in hydrophobic nanopores...i dont know how true is this..??

what r your views in this...??

also would like to direct your attention..lets say..behaviour of water in organic phase enviorment (100% ACN,IPA etc....)
