SAMs under Water: The Impact of Ions on the Behavior of Water at Soft Hydrophobic Surfaces


Since hydrophobic surfaces are by definition “water hating”, one might assume from a simplistic perspective that solvated ions in the water would avoid a hydrophobic surface. While this might be true for idealized solid hydrophobic surfaces, 3 it is certainly not the case for solvated ions near more complex biological assemblies where ions not only approach… (More)
