Abstract: This paper discusses the interfacial chemistry encountered in the self-assembly of ordered nanoscale materials based on surfactant liquid crystalline structures. The paper contains three sections. The first section gives a brief introduction to the interfacial chemistry in the co-assembly of surfactants and inorganic materials. The second section discusses the formation of inorganic´┐Żinorganic nanocomposites, the properties of such materials, and the interfacial atomic structures. The last section discusses hybrid nanoscale materials with functional monolayers, their interfacial chemistry, and their potential applications.
