    簡要記述(中):本研究著重於理解在水與空氣介面的質子吸附行為。這樣的過程在大氣化學和環境科學中扮演重要腳色,並可視為了解氫鍵分子系統中核量子效應的一個模型系統。儘管其重要性,質子吸附到水-空氣界面的定量表徵長期以來一直是實驗和理論上的挑戰。我們的工作正是研究方向上的突破。我們利用相位靈敏式和頻振動光譜研究水表面電場所誘導的分子排列,藉此分析出水-空氣界面的表面電荷及質子密度。我們並發現質子的界面吸附與其和簡單陰離子(如鹵素)的交互作用無關,並其依循恆定的吸附自由能–3.74(±0.56)kJ / mol。這是人類第一次微觀尺度下,通過分子光譜直接測量水合質子對水與空氣界面的吸附能。我們的發現不僅能為重要大氣過程提供更進一步的理解,並為在氫鍵分子系統中進行核量子效應模擬提供了微觀層面的基礎。也解決了長期關於水表面酸鹼度的爭議。
    簡要記述(英):Our work focuses on adsorption of protons to the air/water interface. Such a process plays a vital role in atmospheric chemistry and environmental science, and serve as a model system for exploring nuclear quantum effects in surfaces of hydrogen-bonded systems. Despite its importance, quantitative characterization of the proton adsorption to the intrinsic water/vapor interface has long been an experimental and theoretical challenge. Our work is a breakthrough in this direction.We report in this paper a phase-sensitive sum-frequency vibrational spectroscopic (PS-SFVS) study on quantification of the surface density of protons (or their hydronium form) at the water/vapor interface, through inspecting the surface-field-induced alignment of water molecules in the electrical double layer of ions. With hydrogen halides in water, the surface adsorption of protons is found to be independent of specific proton-halide anion interactions and to follow a constant adsorption free energy, –3.74 (±0.56) kJ/mol, for bulk ion concentrations up to 0.3 M. This is the first time the proton affinity to an intrinsic water/vapor interface has ever been directly measured through a molecular-level spectroscopy (without extrinsic label molecules, e.g., dye, nor crucial model assumption used in interpreting macroscopic observables, e.g., surface tension and electrokinetic mobility). Our findings are not only of importance for better understanding of relevant atmospheric processes, but also offer a microscopic-level basis to develop advanced quantum-mechanical models for molecular simulations of nuclear quantum effects in hydrogen-bonded systems, and to address the long-standing debate regarding acidity of the water surface.

    研究成果名稱(英):Direct Quantification of Water Surface Charge by Phase-Sensitive Second Harmonic Spectroscopy
    簡要記述(中):帶電荷的水介面主導許多自然現象,也在現今能源轉換或能源儲存元件中扮演重要角色。人們對於帶電水介面的物理模型一般基於一個電雙層結構,其中表面電荷控制介面反應的微觀路徑,因此影響水溶液介面系統的化學、生物性質與功能性。雖然現今已有許多方法可估計水溶液表面電荷,但大多需仰賴熱動力學模型與假設以進行分析,這導致分析結果常具有爭議。本研究工作發展一套相位靈敏式光學二倍頻光譜技術,其可在不進行熱動力學模型、或電雙層結構模型情況下,對水溶液界面電荷進行直接量測。我們不僅證明此新方法的原理,成功展示其應用。並且對於其使用限制提供完整的評估。
    簡要記述(英):Our work focuses on characterization of the electrical double layer (EDL) at water interfaces. Such an interfacial charged layer is an essential ingredient for diverse biological and chemical processes and responsible for many modern technologies such as photocatalysis for water splitting and proton-exchange membrane fuel cells. Despite its importance, quantitative characterization of an EDL without crucial model assumption has long been a challenge. Our work is a breakthrough in this direction.
    We report in this paper a new phase-sensitive second-harmonic-generation (SHG) spectroscopic scheme that allows direct quantification of the surface charge density and surface potential of an EDL for any planar aqueous interface accessible by light, without need of prior interfacial information. This method relies on selective probing of the surface-field-induced reorientation order of water molecules in the EDL (associated with the third-order nonlinear susceptibility of bulk water) and is, hence, independent of the microscopic interfacial structure. For demonstration, we examine a mixed organic-molecule monolayer on water as an example. The surface charge density obtained from our method reveals the manifest effect of the chain-chain interactions between heterogeneous molecules among the monolayer on adsorption of soluble ionic surfactants. This is the first time the surface charge density at heterogeneous organic monolayers on water has ever been directly measured without (thermodynamic, chemical, or electrokinetic) assumption nor isotope replacement.
