Electrokinetic potential (zeta potential) for selected 21 polymer foils was studied. The results on zeta potential are supplemented with contact angle measurements (goniometry) and with the results on surface roughness measured by atomic force microscopy (AFM). Zeta potential was determined using two approaches: streaming current and streaming potential at pH=6.0-6.2. Two electrolyte solutions with KCl (concentrations 0.001 and 0.005 mol/dm3) and KNO3 (0.001 mol/dm3) were used in the experiments. Zeta potential was shown to depend on surface chemistry, polarity, roughness and morphology of the polymer foils.
