Description:
This session deals with experimental and theoretical studies of fundamental issues of interfaces in natural and engineered systems. Specific topics will include thermodynamics of interfaces; intermolecular and interparticle interactions; surface forces; electrostatic and electrokinetic phenomena at interfaces; contact angle phenomena and wetting; liquid surfaces; adsorption and desorption; surface modification; self- and directed- assembly; emulsions, micelles, and foams; thin films; and interfacial mass transfer.
