Studies of sessile droplets provide a natural framework for modeling dynamic contact lines. We present several recent results on droplet behavior on heated substrates under the conditions when the effects of both wetting and evaporation are important. For liquids which are aqueous solutions, we investigate how the formation of electrical double layers near the interfaces affects droplet spreading and evaporation. Apparent contact angle is found as a function of both heating and ion concentration in the liquid.
