Usage

In literature:

This method is inapplicable to the antiscorbutic vitamine, which is not adsorbed by this material.

In science:

It is well known that oxygen can strongly modify the spin-polarized band structure in a wide range of materials (e.g. half metallic behaviour arises in the case of some metallic oxides) and that adsorbates can affect the mechanical and electrical properties of nanowires.
Spin dependent quantum transport effects in Cu nanowires
As long as the coverage of adsorbed material is low (say Θ ≤ 10 %), deposition on top of islands is insignificant and nucleation of islands on top of existing islands practically does not occur.
Density Functional Theory of Epitaxial Growth of Metals
Atoms adsorbed in this material below saturated vapor pressure are expected to form either a film adsorbed on the wall of the substrate, or a condensed phase (C) filling all the free space.
Simple Model of Capillary Condensation in porous media
Considerably greater uncertainty is associated with the losses due to surface scattering and absorption due to adsorbed material on the surface of the sphere, of which water is likely the principal component.
Optimal Sizes of Dielectric Microspheres for Cavity QED with Strong Coupling
We conclude that these materials react to the surface pressure exerted by the adsorbate in a similar way as isotropic materials.
Influence of Elastic Strains on the Adsorption Process in Porous Materials. An Experimental Approach
The theoritical calculations performed under the assumption of an inert adsorbent fail to reproduce the ”abnormally” low condensation pressures for porous silicon, while the disagreement for materials submitted to isotropic strains (SBA-15) seems to be less important.
