mass transfer coefficient

in electrochemistry
The heterogeneous diffusion rate constant defined for the case of the limiting current. A more general definition in terms of the electrode currentdensities is:
k d = j ν n F ( c e − c 0 )
k d = j ν ( 1 − t B n ν −1 z B −1 ) n F ( c e − c 0 )
where j is the electrode current density, ν is the stoichiometric number, n is the charge number of the electrode reaction, F is the Faraday constant, c e is the interfacial concentration, c 0 is the bulk concentration, t B is the transport number of species B, and z B is the charge number of species B.
