BOUNDARY CONDITION PROBLEM

I have came up with matrix for numerical solution for a problem where chemical is introduced to channel domain, concentration equation:

δc/δt=D*((δ^2c)/(δx^2))-kc

assuming boundary conditions for c(x,t) as : c(0,t)=1, c(a,t)=0. Where a is channel's length.

What if domain is not-infinite (as it is above) and we cannot assume that the chemical is not dispersed at the end of the channel- so the boundary condition c(a,t)=0 is no longer valid?

What boundary condition can we use when we cannot assume that the chemical is not dispersed at the outlet of the channel? Can you state it or not? How about computational fluid dynamics boundary conditions options?
