Adsorption of 4He and para-H2 is predicted to exhibit exotic properties on weak-binding surfaces. For 4He, alternative scenarios include nonwetting, prewetting and a Bose gas monolayer. For H2, a monolayer superfluid phase can be created by a suitable choice of the substrate. Intriguing phenomena are predicted for 3He/4He mixtures in multilayer films.
