Theory of Electrophoresis and Diffusiophoresis of Highly Charged Colloidal Particles investigates the electrophoretic and diffusiophoretic behaviors of highly charged particles with theoretical approaches by rigorously solving the complete general electrokinetic equations numerically, without any simplifications or approximations. It examines in detail the features that are pertinent to highly charged particles. Special attention is given to the polarization effect that is by far the most important one.
This book provides realistic predictions for the electrophoretic mobility of highly charged particles such as proteins and DNAs, which are of great interest in the field of biochemistry and biomedical applications. Further, this book provides extensive treatments of the non-rigid colloidal systems of practical interests such as the liquid droplets, pores, porous systems and gels, in addition to the conventional rigid particles. As a result, it serves as a very useful tool for chemical engineers or research scientists by providing easy-to-apply charts to either interpret their experimental data or explore feasibility of novel designs in practical operations.
