The only molecule which can pass across this barrier freely in both directions is water. The strong solution of salts and other soluble compounds contained within the living cell is held in by the membrane barrier and allowed to move out only very slowly. This strong solution inside a living cell attracts water from the surroundings. This is osmosis; the attraction of water across a controlling barrier, such as a living cell membrane, in the direction of a strong solution of salts and other dissolved substances.

Combustion, or burning, was a topic that had intrigued alchemists for centuries, especially how one chemical compound could be transmuted into another by heat. The age-old search by alchemists for the formulae Page 19 to transmute baser metals into gold and for the elixir of life were manifestations of the fascination they had with the effects of combustion on substances. Modern-day industries based on the purification of metals and their fusion together by heating to form alloys are outgrowths of the activities of these alchemists.
