A random walk model of stratum corneum diffusion.
The essential stratum corneum. Marks R, Leveque J-L, Voegeli R, eds. London: Martin Dunitz Publishers, 2002 Jul; :165-167
A mathematical model has been developed that is based on the molecular mechanism of diffusion and that explicitly incorporates the non-uniform structure of the stratum corneum. The model is used to predict permeability coefficients of chemicals based on their molecular weight (MW) and octanol-water partition coefficient (P).
