A passive diffusion model has been developed which simultaneously accounts for the dependence of phloem mobility on permeability and acid dissociation. The model is consistent with the observation that the addition of an acid moiety to an otherwise phloem immobile compound may enhance that compound's ability to move in the phloem. However, acid trapping in the basic phloem is not the only enhancement factor. Acid functionalization also lowers the effective permeability usually towards its… CONTINUE READING
