It may affect the hydrophilicity
of the material, making it less or more wettable.
Adhesion strength is dependent not only on the surface roughness but also on surface hydrophilicity
or density of polar groups.
Firstly, the chemical composition of polymer-based glycol such as polypropylene glycol or polyethylene glycol plays a significant role in enhancing the hydrophilicity
of the PDMS surface [30,35].
It might be caused by the increased hydrophilicity
and electrostatic repulsion of the negative charge of the modified membrane surface.

Keywords Doped Ti[O.sub.2] nanoparticles, Photocatalyst, Self-cleaning leather, Contact angle, Photo-induced hydrophilicity
of cSOD2 was calculated according to the method of Parker et al.
Surface coating is a modification method utilized to improve mechanical structure, hydrophilicity
, bioactivity and cytocompatiblity of the scaffolds by use of different biomaterials (11,24,25).
Different strategies, including ultraviolet treatment, plasma treatment, grafting techniques, and surface hydrolysis (38-40), have been applied to increase the hydrophilicity
of polymer materials.

and Method of Making Them Using Vacuum UV Radiation," Andreas Flohr and Torston Lindner (Procter & Gamble Company, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA).
We hypothesized that rough disk surfaces and disk hydrophilicity
allowed more water to be drawn from the reservoir, and prevented the dripping of water onto the surfaces of the disks.
The main characteristic of the deoiling agent is that its hydrophilicity
can be converted.
