Molecular dynamics simulations of aqueous solution/goethite interfaces show that the classical models of the electrical double layer do not accurately describe the distribution of ions near the surface (such a distribution is present even when the surface is neutral) and that the explicit treatment of solvent molecules is essential to capture the effects of the surface on the liquid phase.
