Leidenfrost Effect is when a liquid undergoes rapid vaporization on its bottom surface resulting in a vapor layer that allows it to float on the heated surface, preventing it from boiling away rapidly. Any liquid can undergo Leidenfrost Effect provided there is a hot enough temperature in relation to the liquid’s boiling point (Liquid Nitrogen of boiling point -192°C undergoes Leidenfrost Effect immediately on room temperature).
