A clear, authoritative introduction to the physics and chemistry of liquid interfaces––indispensable for professionals and advanced students in science and engineering.

This book offers a comprehensive, concise treatment of surface science theory and its applications in biology and chemistry. With the contributions of four leading scholars representing bioelectrochemistry, membrane biophysics, and thermodynamics, Liquid Interfaces in Chemistry and Biology includes:

∗ An introduction to general principles of classical thermodynamics, the measurement of interfacial tension, and adsorption at liquid interfaces (employing the methods of Gibbs and Hansen).

∗ A section on electrified interfaces, including new material on Hansen′s method of capillarity and the energetics of extraction.

∗ An exploration of interfacial structure, featuring such latest tools as visualization by molecular dynamics and laser photochemistry at liquid interfaces.

∗ A discussion of the chemistry of interfacial catalysis, including the theory of ion transfer across interfaces and photoelectrochemistry with environmental applications.

∗ Complete coverage of biological membranes, with clear explanations of such complex topics as membrane electrostatics and mechanosensitivity.
