Abstract
The stability of four different hydrophobic surfaces in contact with water is assessed and discussed: H-terminated silicon, hexamethyldisilazane (HMDS) coated silicon, silicon surfaces covered with self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of octadecyltrichlorosilane (OTS) and gold surfaces modified with SAMs of alkanethiols. Changes in hydrophobicity and surface oxidation were determined by contact angle measurements, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and AFM.
