If two homogeneous bulk phases meet there is a region of finite thickness where the properties changed that region is called interface. At a molecular level the thickness of the interfacial region is not zero, and it is significant. The properties of interfacial region can be important for colloid systems, especially for dispersions, where the surface to volume ratio is not negligible.
Electrochemistry at liquid liquid interface is concerned with three main types of charge-transfer reactions, namely- (a) ion-transfer (IT) reactions from one phase to another; (b) IT reactions assisted by the presence of a complexing agent; and (c) Electron transfer(ET) reaction between hydrophillic and hydrophobic redox couple.
The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
