Description:
This session focuses on experimental and theoretical studies of fundamental issues intrinsic to interfaces between solids, liquids, and gases. Some of the focused themes are as follows: 1. Adsorption and reaction of molecules at interfaces (solid-gas, solid-liquid, liquid-liquid, and liquid-gas) 2. Nano-mechanical aspects 3. Surfactants and dynamic interfacial effects 4. Interfacial stresses in multiphase flow 5. Emulsion stabilization. Fundamental concerns of other interfacial phenomena will also be included in this session.
