1. Diffusion and diffusion coefficient Mass transport occurs by diffusion (microscopic, random motion, on molecular scale), by convection (bulk flow, stirring, movement of segments of solution, on scale of apparatus), or by migration (movement of ions along an electric field). Forced diffusion is diffusion as a result of external force field (e.g., centrifugation). Field flow fractionation is a one-phase separation. Solutes interact strongly with field (e.g., gravity field) and move closer to the bottom wall. There is no partitioning. Separation is based on forced diffusion. * J. C. Giddings, Anal. Chem., 1981, 53, 1170A; K. D. Caldwell, Anal. Chem., 1988, 60, 959A.

Linear diffusion Fick (1855) studied the linear diffusion phenomena. Linear (one-dimensional) diffusion: the flux of a substance O at a given location x at a time t, written as J o (x, t), is the net mass transfer rate of O in unit of amount per unit time per unit area ( e.g., mol/sec.cm 2 ). Thus flux represents the number of moles of O that pass given location per second per square cm of area a given location per second per square cm of area normal (perpendicular) to the axis of diffusion.

Fick’s second law Fick's second law pertains to the change in concentration of O with time, or change of diffusion rate with distance.
