Hydrophobic Effect

 

Lacking an affinity for, repelling, or failing to adsorb or absorb water. Hydrophobic effect occurs when a liquid comes in contact with another phase - typically a solid substrate, if it exerts a repulsive force onto the liquid - causing the liquid to retract from the surface, with relatively little contact area between liquid and substrate.

From the Greek for "water fearing," refers to the force that causes oil and water to separate, as the attraction between water molecules is stronger than oil-water attraction. Its opposite is the hydrophilic effect.
