A theory of adsorption kinetics with time delay [Ohshima et al. (1992) Colloid Polym. Sci. 270:707] is developed and applied to the surface tension of a polymer solution. It is found that the general appearance of the overshoot and oscillation in the time course of the surface tension of aqueous gelatin solution observed by Sato and Ueberreiter [(1979) Makromol. Chem. 180:829, 1107; (1979) Polym. Prepr. Am. Chem. Soc. Div. Polym. Chem. 20:907) can be explained by the present theory.
