After constructing a comprehensive theory of physisorption kinetics in the early 1980s [1], we have developed a general theory, based on non-equilibrium thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, to deal with both equilibrium and kinetics of adsorption, desorption, diffusion and reactions of gases at solid surfaces [2].
