Abstract: Siloxane membranes have been long utilized industrially for the separation of gas mixtures due to its very high permeation rate. But the selectivity of this membrane for a particular gas mixture is very low. In order to improve its selectivity value without drastically reducing its permeation rate, lot of literature based on the chemical  structure modifications is available. These modifications often lead to an improvement of selectivity value at the cost of permeability value  or vice-versa. This review deals with the factors affecting the permeability value and an up-to-date chemical modification of siloxane membranes and its transport parameters.
