Abstract

In a recent paper ('t Mannetje, D.; Banpurkar, A.; Koppelman, H.; Duits, M. H. G.; van den Ende, D.; Mugele, F. Electrically Tunable Wetting Defects Characterized by a Simple Capillary Force Sensor. Langmuir 2013, 29, 9944-9949), there are a few misconceptions regarding the interpretations of theories emanating from Shanahan and de Gennes in describing centrifugal adhesion balance (CAB) experiments, making their results seemingly contradictory to the theory. These are clarified here. We show that their results, if interpreted correctly, do not contradict the theories mentioned above.
