The study of the physical and chemical phenomena that occur at the boundary (interface) between two bulk phases is known as surface chemistry.
The bulk phase can be a pure compound or a solution.
Solid-liquid, solid-gas, solid-vacuum, liquid-gas, and other bulk phases are possible.
Surface engineering refers to some surface chemistry applications. Various phenomena occur on the surface of substances, some of which are as follows:
- Heterogeneous Catalysis
Surface chemistry, in a broad sense, is concerned with the interaction of one system’s surfaces with those of another. Some phenomena, for example, work on this principle:
- Formation of Colloid
- Reactions of Electrodes
