In a previous investigation of the characterization of organic acids by quantitative microdiffusion it was observed that a number of the acids gave large characteristic crystals of the sodium salts as a result of the diffusion process. These crystals can serve to confirm the identity of the diffusing acid, as well as provide, by their speed of formation, a rough index of the diffusion rate. The technique may also be used to prepare large crystals of the sodium salts of the acids. The report very briefly discusses results from a study of the diffusion of aliphatic organic acids in sodium hydroxide pellets.
