We propose an effective medium theory to analyze the kinetics of nonsequential adsorption of colloidal particles, including transport and blocking effects, valid at all values of surface coverage. The theory is applied to the irreversible adsorption of diffusing hard disks obtaining a kinetic law, which is in excellent agreement with nonsequential computer simulations at all densities of adsorbed particles. ©1999 The American Physical Society.
