## Sticking probabilityThe - s=s
_{0}(1-c)
## Additional recommended knowledgewhere s Similarly, when molecules adsorb on surfaces dissociatively, the sticking probability is - s=s
_{0}(1-c)^{2}
Although these equations are simple and can be easily understood, they cannot explain experimental results. Their simple explanation is not enough. In 1958, P. Kisliuk presented an equation that can explain experimental results. In his theory, molecules are trapped in precursor states (physisorption) before chemisorption. Then the molecules meet adsorption sites that molecules can adsorb to chemically, so the molecules behave as follows. If these sites are not occupied, molecules - desorb from the surface (pd: probability)
- move to the next precursor state (pm: probability)
- adsorb on the surface chemically (pa: probability)
and if these sites are occupied, they - desorb from the surface (pd': probability)
- move to the next precursor state (pm': probability)
Then the sticking probability is - s=s
_{0}(1+cK/(pa+pd)-1
- (K=pd'/(pa+pd))
When K=1, this equation equals Langmuir's adsorption isotherm. Categories: Physical chemistry | Materials science |
