The Elovich Equation in Chemisorption Kinetics

I. S. MCLINTOCK

Isotopes Laboratory, University of Dundee.

THE equation first proposed by Roginsky and Zeldovich1 but now generally known as the Elovich equation has been extensively applied to chemisorption data2,3. The equation is where q = amount of gas chemisorbed at time t and a and α are constants.
