Diffusion coefficient, D, the amount of a particular substance that diffuses across a unit area in unit time, often obeys the activated transition state theory and its temperature dependence can be expressed by the Arrhenius equation, (22), (23) equation (1):
The resulting calculated diffusion profiles agree reasonably well with the data and yield a single diffusion coefficient of 6.
