In this paper, which is essentially an interpretative review, we develop the theory of multicomponent mass transfer using the Bird, Stewart and Lightfoot approach to binary mass transfer as a consistent basis. Methods of solving the coupled diffusion equations are discussed and procedures for estimating interphase mass transfer coefficients considered. The developed formalisms are applied to a few examples in the areas of distillation, condensation and extraction to demonstrate the importance of considering coupled diffusion effects in multicomponent transfers.
