I am doing some experiments with contact angle of liquids on chrome stainless steel and was wondering if in the literature there is already experimental data for contact angles of different fluids on different types of surface. I am certain that this data has to exist somewhere, so I'm wondering if there is some particle review or research article where it is collated.
You will find tables of this sort of data within the materials science literature under key words wettability, spreading, capillary rise, contact angle, and surface energy.
You will also find surface energy test fluid sets consisting of ranked series of specially-prepared chemical solutions with distinct and well-controlled surface energies. placing droplets of these fluids on a test sample allows you to estimate the surface energy of that sample, by observing whether the test fluid balls up into spheres or spreads out into a film on the surface.
