A model is developed to describe the adsorption and desorption of proteins to and from a surface film under quasi-equilibrium conditions. Starting from Fick's first law of diffusion, an equation for the flux of molecules to a surface is derived assuming a gradient in the chemical potential from the bulk to the surface and a potential barrier due to an… CONTINUE READING
