It happens in all of them
Dif­fu­sion is a physical process where mol­e­cules of a material move from an area of high con­cen­tra­tion (where there are many molecules) to an area of low con­cen­tra­tion (where there are fewer molecules). It happens in every state of matter, even in solid. In XVII century Robert Boyle pre­sent­ed the process of dif­fu­sion in solid with the example of zinc and a copper coin. Another example is bluring of the colors of the glass or ceramic.
