Abstract
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).
