The diffusion of two series of alcohols and amides through complex cellulose acetate membranes was studied. The thin dense part of these membranes behaves as a nonporous layer of low water content. In this layer, called the skin, the solute diffusion coefficients, omega, depend upon size, steric configuration, and the partition coefficient, K(8), between membrane and bathing solution. From the experimental values of omega and K(8), the over-all friction, f, experienced by the solutes in the… CONTINUE READING
