Abstract

Electrical conductivity of agarose gels in 0.15 M KCl was measured. From the experimental data, a functional relation of solute diffusivity to tissue permeability and solute size was derived. This relationship agreed with the experimental results on macromolecule diffusivity in agarose gel published in the literature.
