Gas molecules may adhere, or adsorb to a surface in different ways. If the attractive forces between the molecules and surface are largely non-bonding interactions such as van der Waals forces or hydrogen bonds, the process is called physisorption, while if chemical bonds are formed between the molecules and the surface it is called chemisorption.
