Abstract

Some physiologically active substances change the surface tension very little and are probably adsorbed at tissue interfaces as they exhibit an action. It seems possible to explain their adsorption and action by supposing that they change the electrical potential on the interface of different dielectrics, influencing but little the surface tension, which is taken into consideration by W. Gibbs in his well-known equation.
