Kinetic Analysis and Dynamic Structural Inference

The canonical expression for the accumulation of particles at the solid/liquid (and indeed the solid/gas) interface is dM/dt = ka c*0(M) - kd(t, M)M (35)

where M is the mass (per unit area) of accumulated material (sometimes we shall use v to denote the number of adsorbed particles per unit area), ka is the chemical adsorption coefficient (which may depend on v); c*, the effective bulk solution concentration of the particles; 0, the available area function; and kd, the chemical desorption "coefficient" (which may depend on both M and t). In the following subsections, each of these factors will be analysed.
