The author has organized the main body of his text in thirteen chapters devoted to the structure of the electrical double layer and the origin of charge at interfaces, electrokinetic phenomena and zeta potential, Van der Waals attraction, and a wide variety of other related subjects.
Electrokinetic phenomena scale favourably with miniaturization and offer unique advantages in micro fluidics, such as low hydrodynamic dispersion, no moving parts, electrical actuation and sensing, and easy integration with microelectronics.
The emphasis is on simulating direct-current electrokinetic phenomena such as electroosmosis, electrophoresis, dielectrophoresis, and induced-charge electrokinetics; these phenomena have been widely used to manipulate fluids and particles in microfluidic and nanofluidic devices for various applications.
A time-variable rate of release can be also achieved through electrokinetic phenomena occurring when an electrical potential is applied between the inlet and outlet of channels.
Australia) describe analytical tools and demonstrative experiments for understanding the nonequilibrium and nonlinear electrokinetic phenomena associated with electrolytes and dielectric liquids at the micro and nano scales.
Electrokinetic phenomena, as zeta potential and specific amount of surface charge, characterize electric charge of textile material.
The book provides an excellent systematic review of the physical fundamentals needed to fully understand electrokinetic phenomena, as well as a number of instructional examples that, in most cases, are taken from original scientific publications.
