It is reversible It is irreversible
It is usually takes place at low temperature and decreases with increasing temperature. It takes place at high temperature.
It is related to the case of liquefication of the gas. It is not related.
It forms multimolecular layers. It forms monomolecular layers.
It does not require any activation energy. It requires high activation energy.
High pressure is favourable. Decrease of pressure causesdesorption High pressure is favourable. Decrease of pressure does not cause desorption.
It is not very specific. It is highly specific.
