Abstract  

Tracer diffusion coefficients of cobalt ions have been measured in the supporting medium containing multi-electrolyte systems of alkali bromides. The electrolyte concentration was varied between 10–6-0.1M at 25°C and the diffusion coefficients were determined by zone-diffusion technique using agar gel medium. The trend in the theoretical values of diffusion coefficients is accounted for by considering the relative contribution of mobility function, ionic strength as well as ion size parameter to the theoretical value in different systems. While the deviations between theoretical and experimental values of diffusion coefficients are explained on the basis of various co-occurring effects in ion-gel-water system.
