a)a and b stoichiometric matrixes, NA Avogadro's number, kρ kinetic constant, Mρmolecularity [22]

(b) The relationship between the macroscopic permeability Pn and the molecular diffusion coefficient Dn is: Dn = PnλμNA, λμ being the membrane thickness.

(c) The absolute value guarantees that the propensity density probability is positive and the molecules move in the opposite direction from the concentration gradient.

(d)vaq is the water molar volume, while CTE and CTC are the total osmotic concentration in the external and internal aqueous solutions, respectively.
