Argonne maintains a wide-ranging science and technology portfolio that seeks to address complex challenges in interdisciplinary and innovative ways. Below is a list of all articles, highlights, profiles, projects, and organizations related specifically to surface chemistry.
The Surface Chemistry Group investigates ways to improve our influence over and understanding of surface species, composition, and structure at length scales that range from the atomic level to the microscale.
The scientific achievements of the catalysis science program will help to enable the efficient use of natural resources, such as light alkanes (i.e., methane, ethane, propane, butane), as precursors of fuels for transportation and commodity chemicals.
Liquid crystals are used in everything from tiny digital watches to huge television screens, from optical devices to biomedical detectors. Yet little is known of their precise molecular structure when portions of such crystals interact with air.
