differential molar energy of adsorption

Also contains definitions of: differential molar interfacial energy, differential molar surface excess energy

When the addition of a differential amount d n i σ or d n i s is effected at constant gas volume, the differential molar energy of adsorption of component i, Δ a U i σ or Δ a U i s, is defined as:
Δ a U i σ = U i σ − U i g
Δ a U i s = U i s − U i g
where the differential molar surface excess energy, U i σ, is given by
U i σ = ( ∂ U σ ∂ n i s ) T , m , n j σ = ( ∂ U ∂ n i σ ) T , m , V g , p i , n j σ
and the differential molar interfacial energy, U i s, by
U i s = ( ∂ U ∂ n i s ) T , m , V g , p i , n j σ = ( ∂ U ∂ n i s ) T , m , V g , V s , p i , n j s
U i g is the differential molar energy of component i in the gas phase, i.e.
( ∂ U ∂ n i g ) T , V , n i g
