This chapter describes the methods of measuring permeability properties, because the permeability characteristics of bilayers, and the ability to modify them, are of most interest to biologists concerned with membrane- associated phenomena. Before describing these methods, the chapter relates some of the folklore surrounding the technique of making lipid bilayer membranes, as revealed in both the written literature and the oral tradition.
