Modelling of surface and interfacial properties

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter or book articleProfessional


Understanding of surface phenomena is of vital importance in such diverse areas as materials science and metallurgy, environmental and biological sciences and in aqueous chemistry. Surface and interfacial energies affect phenomena such as wetting and microstructure growth, while adsorption and surface compositions are determining factors in many mass transfer processes. There is a need for reliable computational methods to produce reliable numerical values for simulation, optimization and for search of new and improved materials.
