The interactions between liquids and solids on the microscale is of great relevance as a result of the high surface-to-volume ratio. The ability to precisely control and locate fluid interfaces enables a broad range of inquiries and applications. In this work, we generated controlled fluid interfaces to investigate interfacial transport and reaction processes with a focus on the i) The influence of heterogeneous surface wettabilities on fluid dynamics, ii) Mass transport near a diffusive interface iii) Characterization of the reaction kinetics at an aqueous-organic interface.
