The salt-water interface is one of the most important and
common on earth, playing a prominent role in disciplines such as
atmospheric science and biology. Moreover, the interaction of salt
with water has a particular resonance with chemists and nonchemists
alike, being a piece of "science" exploited daily to, for example,
inhibit the freezing or accelerate the boiling of water. Under ambient
conditions, thin film water covers most surfaces and common
salt--NaCl--is no exception.1
At room temperature and at relative
