Another anomaly in the original ranking (Taylor, 1961, 1962), according to water contact angle, was the apparent smaller contact angle 2. Surface Factors in Bioadhesion 33 of water on Teflon compared with those on silicone and Vaseline. As the result of numerous careful observations (Fox and Zisman, 1950; Bernett and Zisman, 1959), it was found that water exhibits at least an equal, and usually larger, contact angle on Teflon than on any nonfluorinated surface. , 1966) where a photograph of water resting on "virgin" Teflon was published showing a contact angle in the range of 75°, w h e n it should have b e e n around 110°.

Finally, it may be recalled that marine larvae also exhibit considerable diversity in their adhesive behavior (Crisp and Ryland, 1960) which definitely appears to be associated with the critical surface properties of the substrates upon which they settle. T h e contention will certainly be made that critical surface tension is, at best, an average property of the surface, and that the microheterogeneities on all known solids might be the most important determinants of cell adhesive phenomena. But the observation of cell behavior at isotropic surfaces contradicts this objection.
