About this collection

We are delighted to share with you a selection of the papers which will be presented at our Faraday Discussion on Complex Molecular Surfaces and Interfaces taking place in Sheffield, United Kingdom in July 2017. More information about the event may be found here: http://rsc.li/surfaces-fd2017. Additional articles will be added to the collection as they are published. The final versions of all the articles presented and a record of the live discussions will be published after the event.

The unique behavior of compounds confined at interfaces can be very different from those in bulk situations. Advances in methods and their understanding for determination of the structure and chemical bonding at surfaces in central to continued progress in the field. Among the questions that need answering are:

- How is chemical reactivity modified at surfaces and how can we optimise it for selective and   efficient processes?

- How reliable are the actual methods of determining molecular conformation at surfaces?

- How can we control diffusion of molecules at surfaces in order to influence growth?

- Can two-dimensional structure be correlated with three dimensional order?

- How can we make use of single molecule properties at the interface?

Interfacial processes are also at the heart of the function of many materials, the properties they exhibit and chemical reactions they can perform. This Discussion will focus on the understanding of the interaction of molecules with surfaces and their subsequent organisation, reactivity, or property from both experimental and theoretical perspectives.
