The effects of systematic alteration of vehicle composition on the release rate of drugs from their vehicle were studied. Equations were developed which quantitatively predict the rate of transport of a drug across a membrane separating two identical binary aqueous solvents. Separate equations were derived for solutions and for suspensions, which account for both the resistance of the membrane and the resistance of the solvent to drug diffusion.
