Surface Chemistry of Glass

  • D. R. Rossington
Conference paper


When two immiscible phases, such as a gas and a solid, are brought into contact, the concentration of the gas phase is found to be greater at the interface than in its bulk. This process is termed adsorption, and is due to the fact that the atoms in a solid surface are subjected to unbalanced forces of attraction normal to the plane of the surface.
