We study the process of a semiflexible polymer chain adsorption onto planar surface by the dynamic Monte Carlo method, based on the three-dimension off-lattice model. Both the strength of attractive monomer-surface interaction εa and bending energy b have pronounced effect on the adsorption and shape of semiflexible polymer chain. The semiflexible polymer can just fully adsorb onto the surface at certain εa which is defined as critical εa . The essential features of the semiflexible polymer adsorption onto surface are that (i) the critical εa increases with increase of b ; (ii) the shape of the fully adsorbed semiflexible polymer chain is film-like toroid, and the toroid becomes more and more perfect with increase of b . In addition, the size of toroid and the number of turns of toroid can be controlled by the b and εa .
