The diffusion coefficients of Sr in gelled silica gel layers have been measured at various porosities. They decreased with the second power of porosity. At constant porosity, the diffusion coefficients of Sr and Co were measured at various pHs. They were dependent on the distribution coefficients (K) of the species between silica gel and pore water as a function of 1/(1+K). Gelation of the porous layer enables a stable measurement of diffusion coefficients under various conditions and facilitates the analysis of the distribution of ions after the diffusion experiments.
