We know that adsorption is a surface phenomenon. The extent of adsorption depends on the surface area. So, Adsorption is directly proportional to the surface area of the adsorbent. More the surface area more is the amount of adsorbent adsorbed. So, therefore finely divided substance is more effective as an adsorbent due to its high surface area.
