ABSTRACT
The measurements of advancing contact angle of water, glycerol, formamide, ethylene glycol, diiodomethane, α -bromonaphthalene, 1,2,3-tribromopropane and aqueous solution of n-octyl-β-D-glucopyranoside (OGP) on unoxidized and oxidized synthetic chalcocite at the temperatures equal to 293, 303 and 313 K were made. Using the obtained contact angle values of the pure liquids the components and parameters of the unoxidized and oxidized synthetic chalcocite surface tension were calculated. For this calculation different methods based on Young equation were applied. It follows that the surface tension of both forms of chalcocite does not practically depend on the temperature in the range from 293 to 313 K. Taking into account the calculated values of components and parameters of unoxidized and oxidized chalcocite surface tension their wettability by aqueous solution of n-octyl-β-D-glucopyranoside was considered. It appeared that wettability of the unoxidized chalcocite by aqueous solution of OGP can be predicted on the basis of the chalcocite surface tension components and parameters.
