Using high-resolution chronoamperometric measurements, with sampling each 1.333 micro s, the initial step of the adhesion-spreading of liposomes on a mercury electrode was studied. These measurements allow getting a deeper insight into the first interaction of the liposomes with the mercury electrode, and they show that the overall adhesion-spreading process at different potentials is partially controlled by a fast but weak interaction equilibrium resulting in a mixed diffusion- and reaction-kinetics-controlled mechanism of the overall reaction.
