ABSTRACT There are few molecules, if any, more important
than water. Yet remarkably little is known about how it in-
teracts with solid surfaces, particularly at the all important
atomic level. This is true despite widespread general interest
and compelling environmental and economic incentives. Here,
I will discuss detailed density-functional theory studies aimed at
putting our understanding of water­solid interfaces, specifically
water­metal interfaces, on a much firmer footing. In this paper,
I will attempt to answer some key questions: Where do isolated
water monomers adsorb on flat metal surfaces? How do water
