Abstract : The main problems arising in the calculation of transport coefficients of partially ionized gases are discussed. Particular attention is given to the convergence of the Chapman-Enskog method, to the influence of electron-atom, ion-atom and ion-ion interactions and of the electronically excited states in affecting the transport properties of a plasma. The bulk of results refer to LTE plasmas, even though some non equilibrium effects are taken into account. The accuracy of available tabulations is then discussed and an application of present results to a problem of plasmachemistry interest is finally presented.
