Later Kronberg [14] reported the adsorption of nonylphenyl polypropylene oxide- polyethylene oxide NPE type surfactants and pointed out that the adsorption of these kinds of surfactants depends upon the structure of the surfactant rather than adsorbing surface.
Evidence for a smoother, polymer-rich surface resulting from the polymer-latex composites is found in atomic force microscopy (AFM) height images of the surfaces of dry paint films, as shown in Figure 4 for 18 PVC paints based on adsorbing and non-adsorbing polymers.
The adsorbing material (usually solid or liquid) is known as adsorbent (sorbent) while the adsorbed material is the adsorbate (sorbate).
As well as booms, 'socks', cushions and pads, in varying quantities for containing and adsorbing the spillage, kits contain 'Dammit', a clay based sealant for emergency sealing of damaged tanks and drums and mats of the same material for protecting drains liable to be at risk if a spillage occurs.
Ion exchange chromatography is carried out in addition to the hydrophobic interaction chromatography by adsorbing plasmid from an eluate from the second column material onto an ion exchange chromatography material, and eluting the adsorbed plasmid.
Nylon-6 also forms iodophor by adsorbing iodine either from its solution or vapours phase.
Most hydrogen sensors rely on thin palladium wires, which decrease their conductivity within seconds or minutes after adsorbing molecules of the gas.
Only when all edges have decreased their energy by adsorbing gas molecules to the level of the crystallite surface will the gas molecules be adsorbed on the crystallite surface.
Activated carbons are mostly used as physical adsorbents, adsorbing a wide range of species onto a large pore surface area by physical attraction forces.
A new adsorbing media for ammonia that reportedly adsorbs four times faster than existing materials and has 1000% more holding capacity than standard zeolite has been introduced by Lewcott Corp.
Others have shown how to create a band gap in graphene by adsorbing different gasses to its surface, but this is the first time it has been done with water," he said.
Since strong bonds will form more easily than weaker bonds, we can see that the chances of an impacting molecule adsorbing will be dependent upon the character of the surface it impacts upon.
