Solutions of single solutes were dialyzed through Cuprophan using a modified Muir-Ross cell and their half-clearance times were measured. A linear relationship was found between half-clearance time and molecular cross-sectional area for solutes with molecular weights between 60 and 1134. The size of the largest molecule which will dialyze through Cuprophan probably has a molecular weight of about 18,000.
