In this thesis, we investigate the charging behavior and ion adsorption at aolid-liquid interfaces. These phenomena play a crucial role in a wide range of fields, such as colloid science, self-assembly, wetting, electrochemistry, and molecular biology. The aim of this work is to understand the scientific challenges in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) processes. Surface charge properties of rock/clay surface plays an important role in understanding various fluid-rock/clay interactions in an oil reservoir. In this regard, we characterize the surface charge properties of rock/clay-water interface in various electrolyte solutions.
