The formal analysis of the mechanism of adhesion spreading of liposomes at mercury electrodes shares several characteristics with the mechanism of metal nucleation at electrodes. It is shown that the description of the temporal distribution of the adhesion-spreading events is similar to that of the temporal distribution of metal clusters. Both processes are stochastic in nature and can be described by the Poisson distribution. Using this approach, a previously proposed model for the overall adhesion-spreading mechanism, considering the formation of active sites on the liposome and the actual attachment of the liposomes to the mercury surface, is validated.
