Soret effect
 
Does anyone out there understand the physics behind the Soret effect for multicomponent mixtures? I know that gases with low molecular weight diffuse to hot regions and vise-versa for high molecular weight gases. But what is the mechanism for this? Any answers would be greatly appreciated.
