Electrolytes respond to contact with a charged solid surface (metal electrode, semiconductor or insulating ionic solids) by formation of an electric double layer. The modelling of electric double layers at an atomistic level remains a major challenge. A well known technical problem is of course how to fit models of electric double layers in the periodic cells commonly used in atomistic simulation. However, there remain even open questions of a more fundamental nature.
