what is adsorption.

Asked by  | 23rd Aug, 2008, 12:11: AM

Expert Answer:

Adsorption is a process that occurs when a gas or liquid solute accumulates on the surface of a solid or a liquid (adsorbent), forming a film of molecules or atoms (the adsorbate). It is different from absorption, in which a substance diffuses into a liquid or solid to form a solution.
