We analyzed the interaction energy between water clusters and graphene model compound by using density functional theory. The mono- and multi-layer interaction of water on graphene models are regarded as the low and high contact angles, which correspond to the wettability of interface, respectively. We clearly found the size dependency of water molecules on graphene model compound for the wettability.
