Vocabulary Term Details

Adsorption

Definition (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adsorption)

Adsorption is the adhesion of atoms, ions, or molecules from a gas, liquid, or dissolved solid to a surface. This process creates a film of the adsorbate on the surface of the adsorbent. This process differs from absorption, in which a fluid (the absorbate) permeates or is dissolved by a liquid or solid (the absorbent). (Wikipedia)
