General Aspects of the Transport of Matter across Non-semipermeable Membranes

  • R. Schlögl
Conference paper


The “semi-permeable membrane” has played an important role in the understanding of the transport of matter across diaphragms. The strict semi-permeable membrane is an idealization that is never realized in nature. However, this idealization enables us to calculate among other things, for example, the pressure difference in an osmotic equilibrium.
