New theoretical expressions for the modeling of adsorption isotherms of Xenon on Graphite at 110 K have been established. The establishment of these new expressions is based on statistical physics formalism and some working assumptions. This method allowed estimation of physico-chemical parameters in the theoretical model. The parameters intervening in the adsorption process have been deduced directly from experimental adsorption isotherm by numerical simulation. The proposed models allow a good correlation to Type VI experimental isotherms. We mainly introduce three parameters affecting the adsorption process, namely, the density of Xenon receptor sites NM, the number of molecules per site n and the Xenon adsorption energy. Then we apply the model to calculate thermodynamics functions which govern the adsorption mechanism such as entropy, free enthalpy and internal energy.
