The substance dissolved in a solvent.

solute, dissolved solids

Solid particles of material (i.e., dissolved salts and dissolved organic materials) having a mean diameter of less than 0.000001 mm that are dissolved in water.

The [(PPBPDMA) and (PPCPDMA)]-solute interaction parameters of the different solutes, I2a, at infinite dilution were defined using the following equation:
The transport parameters relative to Pe, R and D were obtained using the computational program Disp (Borges Junior & Ferreira, 2006), which fits the transport parameters comparing the experimental values of the solute concentration with those simulated using the solution of the differential equation of transport of solutes in the soil.
Moreover, the bulk electrical conductivity (EC) inside soil columns was measured as a proxy for the solute concentration.
1) It causes bile stasis leading to precipitation of solutes as bile sludge.

In the other hands, in spite of decreasing extraction efficiency the concentration of zinc at the outlet of shell side also increases due to increasing solute flow rate at the inlet of tube side.

Rubenwolf and colleagues revealed that AQPs are expressed in cultured human urothelium, suggesting a potential role in transurothelial water and solute transport.
Because osmosis is a function of both solute concentration and pressure, it should never be defined strictly as a movement of water from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration.
3 Diffusion, convection and adsorption are the three mechanisms used for solute removal during CRRT.
Haemodialysis relies, in the main, on diffusive processes and these rely upon solute concentration gradients on either side of the dialysing membrane, solute molecular size and the random speed of movement of solute molecules.
