Liquid-vapor and liquid-solid interfaces drive numerous important processes in the environment and technology, such as the sequestration of CO2 by the oceans, the uptake and release of trace gases by aerosol droplets, the corrosion of metals, and reactions in electrochemical energy conversion and storage devices. Our understanding of the physical and chemical properties of liquid interfaces under realistic environmental and operating conditions on the molecular scale still falls short of what has been achieved for solid-vapor interfaces over the past decades. This limitation hampers the development of, e.g., more precise climate models and electrochemical devices with increased efficiency.
