A detailed treatment of information relating to fluid-oxide interfaces. It outlines methods for quantifying adsorption and desorption of polymeric and non-polymeric solutes at the gas- and solution-oxide interfaces. It also analyzes novel properties of oxide membranes and the synthesis and dissolution of oxide solids.
The liquid-metal oxide interface: equilibrium adsorption of non-polymeric molecules; adsorption kinetics of non-polymeric molecules; equilibrium adsorption of polymeric molecules; adsorption kinetics of polymeric molecules; activity and electrostatics; surface complex formation; surface and adsorption bond characterization; dissolution of metal oxides; clay surfaces; non-aqueous liquid-metal oxide interface; graft polymerization on oxide surfaces; polymerization in hemimicelles of oxide surfaces; metal oxide membranes. The vapour-metal oxide interface: adsorption - statistical mechanics (vibrational interactions); adsorption - thermodynamic (uniform interpretations); metal oxide catalysts; metal oxide aerogels.
