Abstract

A diffusion chamber technique based on time lag analysis for the estimation of effective diffusion coefficient of nitrite through calf meat is reported. For the solute studied. a reduction in effective diffusion coefficient was observed with a retardation of solute flux in both aqueous and calf meat layers.
