reduced adsorption

Of component i, defined by the equation
Γ i n = Γ i σ − Γ i c i α − c i β c α − c β
where Γ σ, c α and c β are, respectively, the total Gibbs surface concentration and the total concentrations in the bulk phases α and β:
Γ σ = ∑ i Γ i σ
c α = ∑ i c i α
c β = ∑ i c i β
The reduced adsorption is invariant to the location of the Gibbs surface. Alternatively, the reduced adsorption may be regarded as the Gibbs surface concentration of i when the Gibbs surface is chosen so that Γ σ is zero, i.e. the Gibbs surface is chosen so that the reference system has not only the same volume, but also contains the same total amount of substance(n) as the real system.
