chemisorption  adsorption of species (adsorbates) to solid surfaces by the formation of chemical bond between the adsorbate and the surface.
adsorption  binding between foreign molecules and the solid occurring only on the solid surface; specie is attached to the solid surface by weak physical force (van der Waals force).
