Abstract

Measurements are presented of the state of wetting of a binary liquid mixture on heavily silylated glass, which are believed to probe a new region of the wetting phase diagram. We find unusual temperature dependence and the first experimental evidence of a possible "partial drying" transition recently predicted by Ebner and Saam for the case of strong short-range substrate-liquid forces opposed by a weak long-range force.
