Abstract This study was concerned about an estimation of molecular diffusivity $(D_{m})$ in liquid phase systems. An equation based on the absolute rate theory of diffusion was derived by considering the aggregation of not only solvent molecules, but also solute molecules. It was also studied how the replacement of the molar volume of a solvent with its molecular weight influences the accuracy in estimating $D_{m}.$ The values of $D_{m}$ estimated by the equation were compared with those experimentally measured. The mean square deviation for the estimation of $D_{m}$ was calculated as being about 14% for 217 $D_{m}$ data measured in aqueous solutions of methanol and acetonitrile, which is comparable to that obtained by the Wilke–Chang equation. However, $D_{m}$ of some solutes in carbon tetrachloride was more accurately estimated by this equation than by the Wilke–Chang equation. It is expected that the equation proposed in this study is effective for estimating $D_{m}$ in liquid phase systems.
