Adsorption

A retention of substances by loosely attaching to the surface of the filter media.

FAQ
A retention of substances by loosely attaching to the surface of the filter media. It works to the adhesion of ions, atoms and molecules that come from a liquid, gas or dissolved solid to a surface. Solids that can adsorb dissolved substances or gases are called adsorbents; usually referred to as adsorbate.
There can be spaces in a modular structure of material, which means that solvent modules can get trapped depending on which adsorption occurs. There are also unbalanced forces at the surface which can create adsorption.
Adsorption is the adhesion of ions, atoms, and molecules from a liquid, gas or dissolved solid to a surface. This then creates a film of the adsorbate on the surface of the absorbent. Absorption is the whole volume of the material whereas adsorption is a surface phenomenon.
  1. The adsorption process can be applied to the purification of enzymes
  2. Chemical reactions can be sped up by an adsorptive surface
  3. Surface adsorption can combine enzymes with substrates to give reaction products
Adsorption can lead to a decrease in residual forces on the surface of the adsorbent. This can cause a decrease in the surface area of the adsorbent; therefore, adsorption is always exothermic.
