Hydrophobe

Hydrophobic means water-repellent or water-avoidant and is a term used in both biology and chemistry. Molecules are called hydrophobic when they do not mix with water and let water droplets roll off like glass beads on their surface. These molecular groups do not interact with polar groups.
