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–inorganic 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.
