A model for the interphase transfer of drugs is developed and theoretical relationships between partition coefficients and partitioning (transport) rate constants are derived.

A good agreement with experimental data from a series of sulfonamide derivatives is obtained. It is concluded that stagnant diffusion layers at the interface determine to a large extent the transfer rate constants.
