Hierarchically structured, superoleophobic surfaces are demonstrated that display one of the lowest contact angle hysteresis values ever reported - even with extremely low-surface-tension liquids such as n-heptane. Consequently, these surfaces allow, for the first time, even ≈2 μL n-heptane droplets

Photodegradation is seldom considered at the surface of vegetation after crop spraying. Chlorothalonil, a broad-spectrum foliar fungicide with a very widespread use worldwide, was considered. To represent the waxy upper layer of leaves, tests were performed within thin paraffin wax

Partition coefficients for varied compounds were determined for the organic solvent-propylene carbonate biphasic partition system where the organic solvent is n-heptane, isopentyl ether or 1-octanol. These partition coefficient databases are analyzed using the solvation parameter model facilitating a quantitative comparison
