Transport Of Small Molecules

The easiest and simplest way for molecules to cross the plasma is via passive diffusion. During this process, the small molecule gets dissolved in the phospholipid bilayer, diffuses through it and later dissolves in the aqueous solution on the other side of that membrane. Due to moving from high to low concentration, no metabolic energy is required for this way of transport.
