Transport of gases, vapours and liquids through polymers is an important and in some cases, controlling factor in several applications such as protective coatings, membrane separation processes and packaging of foods and beverages. Therefore a better understanding of transport mechanisms in polymers is highly important in order to achieve signi®cant improvement in these areas. This article provides a detailed review of current research in the ®eld of transport phenomena and membrane assisted transport processes. Topics covered include the factors affecting transport processes and transport in various polymeric systems. The relationships between membrane characteristics, polymer structure and separation ef®cacy are treated in detail. q
