Chemical Bonds outside Solid Surfaces

  • N. H. March
Part of the Physics of Solids and Liquids book series (PSLI)


This chapter deals with the changes induced in a chemical bond when it is brought up from infinite separation to a finite distance from a planar solid surface. Attention will focus mainly on the chemical bond parallel to the surface, though some discussion will be included of the perpendicular configuration and, indeed, the bond at an arbitrary orientation to the surface.
