Example Of hydrophobic

  • Emulsions are typically made up of a hydrophilic, aqueous portion and a hydrophobic , oil portion.

  • The amount of dimer that exists in organic solvents often increases with increasing solvent hydrophobicity (decreasing dielectric).

  • The negative values refer to inverse relationships between hydrophobic and hydrophilic residues.

  • The polyurethane foam does not hold moisture and is hydrophobic (water repelling).

  • The researchers found that beta-peptides showed similar trends, with decreases in hydrophobicity leading to greater selectivity for bacterial cells.
