The selection of membrane materials is an essential factor in the efficiency of related gas and vapor separation technologies. This collection of papers by leading experts reviews the most recent literature and describes the fundamental technologies and practical aspects of this important field in the chemical industry, serving professionals as a reference as well as providing enough basic information to give students a solid introduction. Topics of the 17 papers include glassy and rubbery polymers, highly permeable permeable /per·me·a·ble/ (per´me-ah-b'l) not impassable; pervious; permitting passage of a substance.

That can be permeated or penetrated, especially by liquids or gases.
 polymers, glassy polymers, substituted polyacetylenes, perfluoropolymers, polyimides, zeolite zeolite

Any member of a family of hydrated aluminosilicate minerals that have a framework structure enclosing interconnected cavities occupied by large metal cations (positively charged ions)—generally sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and barium—and water
 membranes, carbon membranes, polymer membranes for organic liquids, solid-state facilitated transport membranes for the separation of olefins/paraffins and oxygen/nitrogen, using a unified approach to membrane permeation using a solution-diffusion model, and using such methods as positron positron: see antiparticle.

Subatomic particle having the same mass as an electron but with an electric charge of +1 (an electron has a charge of −1). It constitutes the antiparticle (see antimatter) of an electron.
 annihilation lifetime spectroscopy for free volume evaluation in polymers. Each paper includes references.
