Water at solid surfaces: A review of selected theoretical aspects and experiments on the subject

Abstract

This review summarizes select aspects of the research on solid/water interfaces. Despite the considerable amount of work, the way water molecules are organized at the interface is still a source of debate. Theoretical efforts will be presented in combination with the results of computer simulations. The current status of investigations obtained with x-rays and neutron reflectometries, and sum frequency generation spectroscopy (all sensitive to the properties of solid/liquid interfaces) will be summarized and discussed.
