Surface Chemistry (Part-1)

Adsorption is a surface phenomenon. Very minute chemical particles suspended in another phase of matter, meaning in the air as a gas or in water as a liquid, are sometimes considered contaminants. These tiny particles can be separated from that phase, called the adsorbent, to enter a different phase. A material of another phase, like the solid carbon, preferentially targets these particles and bonds the adsorbate to its surface. The remaining air or liquid has been purified. This differs from absorption where the particles never change phase, but enter pores of the solid along with the accompanying air or water.
