The influence of thermal fluctuations on adsorption isotherms is calculated within the context of a selfconsistent mean-field theory, and it is found that such fluctuations cannot be neglected in the analysis of adsorption data. This result arises from our observation that substrate-induced hindrance of thermal fluctuations can significantly alter the form of an adsorption isotherm, particularly in the thin-film regime (’02 5n m ! which is most commonly probed by adsorption experiments… Expand
Temperature Dependence of Hydrogen Adsorption Isotherms
In the past it has already been shown that adsorption isotherms of liquid or solid films are not described completely by the Frenkel–Halsey–Hill theory. Substrate roughness as well as thermalExpand
Thermal fluctuations of thin liquid films
A surprising lowering of the surface energy of liquid surfaces was recently found in x-ray scattering experiments which enhances thermal fluctuations of fluid interfaces at microscopic scales andExpand

The kinetic behavior of vapor adsorption on a solid surface in an isobaric-isothermal system is investigated by means of molecular dynamics simulations combined with theoretical studies through aExpand
Molecular insight into the formation of adsorption clusters based on the zeta isotherm.
The surface adsorption sites determined from molecular dynamics simulation show good agreement with that predicted by the zeta isotherm model, which reaffirms the effectiveness of the theoretical model. Expand
Investigation on the mechanisms of cluster formation and transition from adsorption to condensation
Abstract In order to understand the mechanism of cluster formation and transition from adsorption to condensation, a series of theoretical analysis based on the Zeta adsorption model and molecularExpand
Adsorbed films of methyl halides on magnesium oxide and boron nitride
Adsorption isotherm techniques and x-ray powder diffraction were used to study adsorbed films of three methyl halides (CH3R, R=Cl, Br, I) on magnesium oxide (MgO) and boron nitride (BN). The aim ofExpand
Hydrogen Adsorption Isotherms: Modelling of Experimental Data
Adsorption isotherm measurements have shown deviations from classical theories in the past, leading to the inclusion of more complex effects into adsorption theory. We demonstrate here that in theExpand
Triple-point wetting of molecular hydrogen isotopes
Triple-point wetting is a well-known phenomenon of simple adsorbates on solid substrates, which involves, in the liquid phase above the triple-point temperature, T3, complete wetting with theExpand
Van der Waals forces in free and wetting liquid films.
It was shown that van der Waals interactions between molecules represent the universal mechanism for dynamic structuring and formation of boundary layers and that the CDM allows self-consistently calculating the properties of these layers in both solid and liquid phases. Expand
Truncated fractal modeling of H2O-vapor adsorption isotherms
Abstract Adsorbent–adsorbate interaction in fractal surfaces is complicated but important in soil science. The main objectives of the present work were (i) to test a truncated version of theExpand
