about

The interface between two different liquids, such as water and oil, provides a unique environment for synthesising materials with highly tuned, desirable properties. As such, these ‘liquid–liquid’ interfaces and two-phase, organic–aqueous systems as a whole are a key part of materials science. By basing reactions on the many, complex reactions that occur within nature at liquid-liquid interfaces, a variety of useful materials, including newly developed fluorescent polymers, conductive polymers, nanoparticle arrays and novel 2D materials can be produced. These offer real potential within flexible electronics, energy storage, enhanced oil recovery, sensors and beyond.

This book is written both as a state-of-the-art review on the materials synthesised through these specialist interfaces and as a theoretical introduction to provide a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of the interfaces. It should be of interest to researchers currently working in various industrial sectors, academia and consultancy.

Chapter 1 provides an overview of interfaces in natural and biological systems. Chapter 2 outlines the fundamental properties of the interface. Chapters 3 and 4 are devoted to the synthesis and self-organisation of nanoparticles and polymers through interfacial systems. The synthesis of conductive, fluorescent and conventional polymers and their properties are extensively covered, with the most important findings from the recent literature highlighted. A deeper analysis on their electronic transport, magnetic and optical properties is beyond the scope of this work and rather an introduction on these properties is presented. Finally, the closing Chapter 5 serves as a discussion and analysis on the potential applications of liquid–liquid boundaries and of the materials synthesised through them.
