Abstract—In the expanding area of research environmental molecular surface science has been of great interest. This paper focusses at the molecular level of oxide surfaces. These oxide surfaces are used as catalysts in the remediation of environment. In troposphere oxide particles adsorb and catalyze the reaction of trace gases thereby causing the chemical balance of the atmosphere. The pollutant molecules are adsorbed and catalyzed by the reactions which occur when mineral oxides come in contact with the ground water. For understanding the molecular level information a lot of study has to be done on surface science which involves environmentally relevant conditions, adsorbate-surface interactions, surface reaction mechanisms, structure-reactivity relationships and an overall understanding of these processes on the molecular level

Index Terms—Oxide surface, Environmental interface, Rock salt
