Studies of the interface between mineral and organic materials have been realized for a couple formed between pure transition metal and a polar and polarizable molecule (acrylonitrile).
The results presented show the effects of a local electric field on the activation processes associated with adsorption sites and the molecule, interaction mechanisms and the resulting types of chemical bond.
The structural, electronic and chemical properties of a nickel-polyacrylonitrile interface are described.
Molecular and energetic qualitative models for the interaction mechanisms are proposed.
