Formatted abstract
Interaction between interfaces in solution of chemical reagents is scientifically and technologically significant. Atomic force microscopy has been used to visualise structures of adsorbed surfactant molecules and measure interaction forces between surfaces with adsorbed molecules. This paper presents the results obtained by the author and associates in three major research strands, including imaging structures of surfactants adsorbed at solid-liquid interfaces, measuring interfacial forces between water-repellent (hydrophobic) surfaces and microhydrodynamic forces between an AFM colloid probe and a soft interface. The research increases our understanding of the role of surfactants and interaction forces in particle technology and interface science.
