is a flux of the ith component of the mixture, and it is a sum of the diffusional and Darken drift fluxes.
One-dimensional bin microphysics schemes exclude information about the CCN within cloud droplets and thus the impact of dissolved CCN on droplet diffusional growth cannot be considered.
Additionally, the redox process has no diffusional obstacles and the electroactive polymer is securely attached to the working electrode surface [49].
The formation and growth of the bond relies on both the temperature of the melt as well as the diffusional transport of iron.
To evaluate functionality of the diffusional barrier in more detail, the transport of sodium fluorescein (NaFlu), a hydrophilic molecule typically used to evaluate paracellular transport, was monitored.

Coble reported that grain boundary diffusional creep can occur in the temperature range T/Tm < 0.7 and under intermediate creep stress; this effect is similar to our observations for creep stress lower than 380 MPa.
That data suggests that the diffusion of zolmitriptan across the full thickness skin demonstrates how the dermis, without capillary flow, will result in a rate limiting step in absorption of microprojection mediated drug delivery [16] attributable to the increased diffusional path length associated with the utilization of full thickness skin [17].
The mathematical expression was based on the diffusional mechanism of water, expressed in
It is known that sometimes there arise similarities between guest molecules of reaction mixture and micropore diameter of zeolites, which in turn slows down the reaction rate on behalf of diffusional limitations.
Even though the depth of the stratum corneum is basically around 20 um, the specific diffusional route of nearly all molecules passing through the skin is 400 um.
