In science:

In conclusion, we have introduced and studied the problem of a randomly forced DNA or its equivalent randomly forced adsorbed polymer.
Randomly forced DNA
In summary, the results reported on here depict the action of strong interactions between adsorbed layers on the pore surfaces and the remaining liquid.
Collective excitations in liquid D2 confined within the mesoscopic pores of a MCM-41 molecular sieve
The origin of such phenomena can be thought of as arising from friction effects of the flowing liquid against the adsorbed solidlike layers.

Due to the blocking of the lattice by the already randomly adsorbed elements, the limiting or jamming coverage is less than that corresponding to the close packing.
Dimer percolation and jamming on simple cubic lattice
The accuracy of rate equations is compromised when a species reacts on the grain surface faster than it can adsorb or desorb: this drives the reactant abundance per grain to less than unity and the mean-field approximation is no longer valid (Caselli et al. 1998).
