Abstract: Mathematical equations governing kinetics of desorption from heterogeneous surfaces are derived from a master equation with the assumption that only nearest-neighbor adatoms interact. A number of cases are analyzed: random, periodical, and patchwise distributions of sites characterized by different activation energies. In general, the kinetic equations obtained must be solved numerically. We have performed numerical calculations for several specific cases and analyzed the influence exerted by heterogeneity and lateral interaction between adatoms on the desorption rate ds-dT. The results obtained make it clear that, due to lateral interaction, the desorption curves are very sensitive to the way in which heterogeneities are distributed on the surface (periodically, patches with different sizes, etc.).
