STAROV, V., 2010. Surface forces action in a vicinity of three phase contact line and other current problems in kinetics of wetting and spreading. Advances in Colloid and Interface Science, 161 (1-2), pp. 139-152.
The most important problem in kinetics of wetting and spreading from the author's point of view is a
consideration of combined surface forces and capillary action in a vicinity of the apparent three phase
contact line. The latter is equally important at the consideration of static or dynamics. Other current trends in
kinetics of wetting and spreading are also briefly reviewed. It is impossible to cover the whole literature on
the subject: it was around 5000 publications on that subject in 2009 only and the total number of publication
in the area is 65,917 (according to Science Direct). The problems to be solved in the area are marked in italic
bold and underlined.
