The physical properties of nanoscale materials often vary with their size, unlike the corresponding bulk material properties, which can only be changed by modifying the material composition. In particular, it is believed that hydration phenomena are length scale dependent. The manifestation of hydrophobicity over multiple length scales plays a crucial role in self-assembly processes such as protein folding and colloidal stability. In the case of particles composed of a bulk hydrophobicdoi:10.1063/1.3276915 pmid:20059098 fatcat:6w2bpm3r5natvfbhrmlcuigwlu
