Abstract
Chain-like macromolecules (polymers) show characteristicadsorption properties due to their exibility and inter-
nal degrees of freedom, when attracted to surfaces and interfaces. In this review we discuss concepts and
features that are relevant to the adsorption of neutral and charged polymers at equilibrium, including the type
of polymer/surface interaction, the solvent quality, the characteristics of the surface, and the polymer structure.
We pay special attention to the case of charged polymers (polyelectrolytes) that have a special importance
