The orientation of silver molecules where the surface of a metal meets a liquid was explored in the Journal of Ramen Spectroscopy in February 2013. The article, written by J. P. Schulte, S. Grass, and L. Treuel was first published in October, 2012.
With an interest relating to the design of nano-structured metallic surfaces and catalytic processes, the adsorption geometry of molecules was studied. Using Ramen Spectroscopy, observations were made in the context of two pH variations. Through the use of maleic acid and fumaric acid, clear differences were observed.
