Surface science is the study of physical andchemical phenomenathat occur at the interface of two phases, including solid-liquid interfaces, solid-gas interfaces, solid–vacuum interfaces, and liquid–gas interfaces. It includes the fields ofsurface chemistry and surface physics. Some related practical applications are classed as surface engineering. The science encompasses concepts such as heterogeneous catalysis,semiconductor device fabrication,fuel cells, self-assembled monolayers and adhesives. Surface science is closely related to interface and colloid science. Interfacial chemistry and physics are common subjects for both. The methods are different. In addition, interface and colloid science studies macroscopic phenomena that occur in heterogeneous systems due to peculiarities of interfaces.
