Diffusion through agar blocks of finite dimensions: a theoretical analysis of three systems of practical significance in microbiology.


A number of experimental methods in biology depend on the kinetics of diffusion of a substance through a gel. This paper reviews the diffusion equations, gives the experimental limitations for some useful cases, and presents computer simulations for cases that cannot be treated analytically. While double diffusion is not considered, three single-diffusion… (More)
