Boltzmann’s integration method may prove to be a very powerful tool to study the transport diffusion of guest molecules in na noporous host systems. In many cases, however, the prerequisites for applying this method are not completely fulfilled. In the following, the consequences of these deviations on the accuracy of the obtained results are discussed.

It is found that the results of Bo ltzmann’s integration method can be corrected by different considerations. The discussion is focussed on the concentration prof iles observed during the adsorption and desorption of methanol in ferrie rite-type crystals as observable by interference microscopy.
