    Osmosis is the phenomenon of the movement of Solvent molecules from lower solute conc. to higher solute conc. through a semi-permeable membrane to make solute conc. equal on both sides. Osmosis is diffusion of water across a semi-permeable membrane.

    Osmosis is also a kind of diffusion but the catch is, it mostly involves a semi-permeable membrane and the term is `specifically used when solvent is water. `
