Dear Jim,

As the diffusivity is concentration dependent we  provide you with a weighted average diffusion coefficient for the concentration range of 100% liquid n-hexane in polypropylene. This diffusion coefficient is only applicable for stationary permeation calculations and for polyproplylene . The weighted average diffusion coefficient of n-hexane in polypropylene is 1E-12 m2/s at 23 degrees Celsius and 1 bar system pressure. When you require support with n-hexane or other organic solvents
in vapour phase and/or instationary permeation or another special application, we invite you to contact us via Thanks.

Yours sincerely,
