The algebraic methods of Hansen and Goodrich and the geometric methods of Motomura, Good and Everett were applied to define and investigate adsorption excess quantities at a solid/binary liquid interface. Both single-plane and two-plane geometric constructions were found to be consistent with the algebraic method. Relations between the relative, molar reduced and volumetric reduced areal excess concentrations and the amounts of components actually present in the interfacial layer are discussed.
