1970). The critical surface tension holds promise for becoming an important single soft tissue characterization parameter for a biomaterial surface, in spite of quite reasonable objections to the contrary (Andrade, 1973). Several important reactions to materials surfaces have been shown to vary in the same order as the critical surface tension: 1. The amount of thrombosis in vivo increases as yc increases (Harrison, 1958). 2. , 1965). 3. Adhesion of tissue to artificial skin decreases as yc increases (Hall et al, 1970).

These series do not take into account oxide film formation at different values of pH. A special type of diagram has been developed which shows the different kinds of behavior as the pH and potential are varied. These special equilibrium diagrams are called Pourbaix diagrams.

When a potential is applied to a surface the interfacial free energy changes, as shown in Fig. 8. The surface charge given by the formula σ = -(dy/dE)TtPttl (8) is the negative of the slope of the given curve. The interfacial free energy is a maximum when σ = 0. To the best of our knowledge, this phenome­ non has not been used to date to describe any biomaterials behavior.
