This paper suggests a method to reduce electronic wastage by controlling the wetting of the substrates to enable reuse of the device in an effort to improve device control. If the devices were cleaned after a given operation, it can be reused. With this preliminary idea, the present investigation reports the concentration dependent wetting of indium tin oxide by aniline-alcohol binary liquid and shows how varying the concentration of the liquids can control the wetting phenomenon. This binary liquid system is an important prototype for the biological hydrogen bond interactions of N-H---O. Surface tension (liquid-liquid), adhesive energy (solid-liquid), surface energy of the substrate and contact angle of the liquids with the substrate are measured by using a contact angle goniometer.
Keywords: Bio-micro-electro-mechanical systems | Contact angle | Surface energy | Surface tension | Wettability
