Heat and mass transfers are coupled processes, also in nucleation. In principle, a nucleating cluster would have a different temperature compared to the surrounding supersaturated old phase because of the heat release involved with attaching molecules to the cluster. In turn a difference in temperature across the cluster surface is a driving...

We present a theory that describes the transport properties of the interfacial region with respect to heat and mass transfer. Postulating the local Gibbs relation for a continuous description inside the interfacial region, we derive the description of the Gibbs surface in terms of excess densities and fluxes along the surface. We introduce...

A vapor-liquid interface introduces resistivities for mass and heat transfer. These resistivities have recently been determined from molecular simulations, as well as theoretically using the van der Waals square gradient model. This model, however, does not allow for direct quantitative comparison to experiment or results from molecular...
