A survey of selected results and new problems involving classical and non-classical diffusion is presented. The classical results are given via reaction-diffusion equations modeling stirred tank and tubular chemical reactors. The more recent diffusive phenomena arise in several contexts; we shall use liquid and gaseous penetration in polymers to illustrate the observations.
