Water has been predicted theoretically and observed experimentally to exhibit a wetting transition on graphite. Previous study of this problem was based on quite uncertain water-graphite interaction potentials. This paper computes the wetting temperature on graphite using recent, more realistic, interactions. Similar calculations are presented for the case of water on a suspended (free-standing) graphene sheet.
