The adsorption of selected compounds of interest to semiconductor processing onto metallic and semiconductor surfaces has been investigated using a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) technique. The effect of variables such as solution pH and concentration on adsorption has been characterized. Improvement of the sensitivity of the technique using an electrical bias to the crystal electrode has been explored.
