Journal ArticleDOI
Ulrike Diebold1
TL;DR: Titanium dioxide is the most investigated single-crystalline system in the surface science of metal oxides, and the literature on rutile (1.1) and anatase surfaces is reviewed in this paper.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The field of photocatalysis can be traced back more than 80 years to early observations of the chalking of titania-based paints and to studies of the darkening of metal oxides in contact with organic compounds in sunlight as discussed by the authors.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The atomic force microscope (AFM) is not only used to image the topography of solid surfaces at high resolution but also to measure force-versus-distance curves as discussed by the authors, which provide valuable information on local material properties such as elasticity, hardness, Hamaker constant, adhesion and surface charge densities.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors compare and discuss recent experimental and theoretical results in the field of H2O-solid interactions, and emphasize studies of low (submonolayer) coverages of water on well-characterized, single-crystal surfaces of metals, semiconductors and oxides.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A review of the fundamental interactions of water with solid surfaces can be found in this paper, where the authors assimilated the results of the TM review with those covered by the authors to provide a current picture of water interactions on solid surfaces, such as how water adsorbs, what are the chemical and electrostatic forces that constitute the adsorbed layer, how is water thermally or non-thermally activated and how do coadsorbates influence these properties of water.
