Surface chemistry

Surface chemistry (examples)
Common examples of surface chemistry. [3]
In science, surface chemistry is the study, at both the microscopic and macroscopic levels, of how atoms and molecules interact with surfaces, how they behave, and why they react. [1]

Human chemistry
Being that human chemical reactions, i.e. reactions between human molecules, generally occur on a surface, surface chemistry will invariably yield better models of human behavior than models in gas-phase or liquid-phase chemistry. [2]
