There are major water-related challenges that require enhanced molecular-level understanding and description of water at interfaces, to relate that understanding to macroscopic phenomena in aqueous systems, and then ultimately utilize or control those phenomena. Interfacial water is crucial for disciplines as diverse as atmospheric science, geochemistry, energy science, water purification/desalination, and biology.

This Faraday Discussion aims to combine different approaches, both experimental and theoretical, to further our understanding of the fundamental properties of water at interfaces. Such insights are expected to have important implications for chemistry, biology and potentially medicine; key sustainable technologies such as filtration, desalination, and photocatalytic water splitting; as well as modelling of processes in atmospheric chemistry and physics.
