Abstract null null The intrinsic contact angle is an essential wetting parameter between a liquid and a substrate and had long been regarded as an intrinsic interfacial property. Recent investigations showed that the intrinsic contact angles depend on substrate curvatures. However, the reported trends were contradictory, and the underlying physics has not been revealed. This paper presents a molecular perspective to understand the intrinsic nature of the curvature effect on the contact angles. M...
