This paper reviews some phenomenological models which are employed in recent years to interpret and analyze permeation behavior of gases and gas mixtures through nonporous polymer membranes. The applicability and limitations of the models are discussed in light of recent experimental results of permeation of gas/vapor mixtures through a disubstituted polyacetylene, poly[1-(trimethylsilyl)-1-propyne], membrane.
