Adsorption on model fractal surfaces

A simple model for the adsorption of gas molecules on fractal surfaces is formulated. For surface reactions where adsorption is the rate determining step, considerations based on the probability of adsorption are sufficient to describe the kinetics. Different values of fractal dimension correspond to different values of rate constant for adsorption. A linear relationship between the dynamics and the geometric properties of a solid surface as well as a statistical mechanical relationship between internal partition functions of the gas molecule and the adsorption complex are obtained.
