Ailerons and Adverse Yaw

The concept of what adverse yaw is, how ailerons create it, and various solutions to counteracting it were discussed at length is a previous question. The short answer is that deflecting the ailerons results in more drag on one side of the plane than the other, and this difference causes the nose of the plane to turn (or yaw) in a direction that opposes the desired roll. Please review the above link for a much more detailed explanation.
