Diffusion of droplets solution in water

  1. Jul 12, 2011 #1
    Greetings to all,
    I will like to know how to determine the concentration gradient of a solute that is dissolved in a liquid (a solute in oil). Droplets of this solute solution are made in another continous phase (water). The oil is partially soluble in wate. As soon as this difussion starts, the concentration of the solute close to the oil-water interface increases. This results in a nonuniform concentration of the solute (radially speaking). I will greatly appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you very much!!!
    very best regards,
