isosteric enthalpy of adsorption

When the addition of the differential amount of component i d n i σ or d n i s is effected at constant pressure p, the differential molar enthalpy of adsorption, Δ a H i σ or Δ a H i s also called the isosteric enthalpy of adsorption (q st) is defined as:
Δ a H i σ = − q st , σ = U i σ − H i g
Δ a H i s = − q st , σ = H i σ − H i g
where H i s = ( ∂ H s ∂ n i s ) T , p , m , n j s and H i g is the partial molar enthalpy of component i in the gas phase, i.e. ( ∂ H g ∂ n i g ) T , p , n i g
