This module will explore the theory of ionic solutions, the properties of interfaces and the behaviour of molecules at interfaces, and experimental methods for the investigation and characterisation of such systems. This will include discussion of topics such as the conductivity and electrochemistry of ionic solutions, molecular adsorption at interfaces and self-assembly, the structure of solid surfaces and experimental techniques such as atomic force microscopy.
