Evaluating Mass Transfer Coefficients for Glucose into the Rabbit Eye
One area of common interest to chemical engineering and biology is mass transfer across boundaries. The basic principles of physical chemistry are used to study the rate and equilibrium relationships in these processes. With a few simplifying assumptions, chemical engineers have for many years been able to design equipment in which matter is transferred across phase boundaries, and more recently, through membranes.
