A model is proposed for analyzing sorption and volumetric behavior of glassy polymer-penetrant systems. It is shown that the proposed theory can predict general trends for sorption and volumetric behavior in the glassy state, and furthermore, it gives good agreement with actual sorption data. The model takes into account the effects of structural arrangements in the polymer matrix on sorption and volumetric behavior.
