A mathematical model of the kinetics of bacterial adsorption on polymeric materials with various hydrophobicity is developed. The model describing the bacteria-liquid phase-polymer surface system is capable of predicting the amount of bacteria adsorbed on the surface within a certain period of time. The model is based on the resolution of the motive force of adsorption into two components. The first component characterizes the interactions based on the hydrophobic properties of bacteria and polymers and is expressed in terms of interphase tensions. The second component describes the remaining types of interactions, which cannot be represented in a similar way.
