Mentions: If the studied biosystem, such as a tissue, consists of the cells of the same type with similar intracellular compartments, the flux terms F are practically identical for the transport from all aqueous phases (FA, odd initial subscript i) and from all bilayers (FM, even initial subscript i). For this common situation, eq 16 can be simplified to eq 17 for the aqueous phases and eq 18 for the bilayers,(2115) with the compartment numbering given in Figure 14 in section :The dependencies on the lipophilicity of the free, non-ionized steady-state concentrations, which were attained during continuous dosing, are illustrated in Figures 26 and 27. The transfer rate parameters li and lo contained in the flux terms were expressed using eqs 3 in section , so the results are valid for the chemicals, which do not accumulate in the headgroups and at the interfaces. Interestingly, no peaks are apparent in the bilogarithmic dependencies; rather, the concentrations of chemicals are, after an initial linear increase for hydrophilic chemicals, independent of lipophilicity for aqueous phases, and rise at a lower rate for membranes. The slopes of the leftmost linear parts are dependent on the compartment number (see Figure 26). The break-point log P value is affected less by the compartment number (see Figure 26) than by the magnitude of the elimination rate (Figure 27).
