Diffusion is not a substance. It is a physical process. Diffusion is the process where there is a movement of molecules from where they are abundant to where they are scarce. A more technical definition would be: Diffusion is a process in which molecules move from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration.

What are large molecules made up of small molecules called?

AnswerIt can be a peptide, if it is of medium size, and the biggest is a protein molecule. A large molecule made up of amino acids may also be an enzyme.

What are Channel and carrier proteins?

Channel proteins are on the plasma membrane, selectively transport the solutes such as ions, small and large proteins across the membrane. Carrier proteins also membrane proteins that allow diffusion of different molecules. Both proteins are chemically made up of amino acids.

Giant organic molecule made of small molecules linked together?

No, it is one molecule.However some large organic molecules (i.e. polymers) are formed from small organic molecules (i.e. monomers) that bond together into long chains, forming one new large molecule. The small molecules no longer exist as individual molecules after bonding into the large molecule.
