X-rays are an ideal probe for studying structural properties of matter, normally employed to determine the atomic structure and morphology of surfaces and interfaces. Aim of this talk is to provide the basic knowledge on the main techniques used in this field, i.e. X-ray reflection, surface X-ray diffraction and grazing incidence small angle scattering, together with a description of the beamline layout and equipment. Examples will be shown dealing with the adsorption of organic molecules on noble metal surfaces and with the dependence on the surface chemical state and morphology of the turn over frequency during the heterogenous catalytic oxidation of CO.
