In this work multi-component diffusion in the Extended Irreversible Thermodynamics Framework is investigated. It is shown by using appropriate transformations of fluxes and forces that the resistance coefficients for multi-component diffusion in the Extended Irreversible Thermodynamics Framework follow similar laws such as in Classical Irreversible Thermodynamics (CIT). It is believed that this work could contribute to understanding multi-component diffusion in systems exhibiting long relaxation times or critical phenomena.
