The intermolecular interactions and surface characteristics of materials mostly determine their physicochemical properties and functionalities. Characterization of the intermolecular and surface interaction mechanisms (e.g., adhesion, friction) of soft materials (e.g., surfactants, polymers, biopolymers) and engineering/bioengineering systems (e.g., stabilization/destabilization of emulsions, adsorption of proteins, nano-carriers for drug delivery) has attracted much research interest. In this talk, the basics of intermolecular and surface forces and the commonly used nanomechanical techniques, such as surfaces forces apparatus and atomic force microscope will be briefly introduced. The recent progress on how we applied these advanced nanomechanical techniques for quantifying intermolecular and surface interactions of polymer materials, biological and engineering systems will be presented. The fundamental interaction mechanisms elucidated have been further applied for the development of advanced functional materials with important engineering, bioengineering and environmental applications (several examples will be given).
