The remarkable differences in the guest diffusivities in nanoporous materials commonly found with the application of different measuring techniques are usually ascribed to the existence of a hierarchy of transport resistances in addition to the diffusional resistance of the pore system and their differing influence due to the differing diffusion path lengths covered by the different measuring techniques. We report diffusion measurements with nanoporous glasses where the existence of such resistances could be avoided. Molecular propagation over diffusion path lengths from hundreds of nanometers up to millimeters was thus found to be controlled by a uniform mechanism, appearing in coinciding results of microscopic and macroscopic diffusion measurement.
