This thesis describes the thorough investigation of mixed gas transport behavior of asymmetric membranes in the separation of feed streams containing plasticizing gases in order to gain more insights into the complicated behavior of plasticization. To successfully employ gas separation membranes in (new) applications containing plasticizing feed streams, membranes with improved stability have to be developed. Fundamental knowledge on the complicated behavior of plasticization in the separation of these gas streams using asymmetric membranes is an important issue in this development.
