Electrokinetic phenomena in microfluidics are caused by the interaction between the applied electric field and the diffusion layer in the electric double layer.
Fluid pumping based on electrokinetic phenomena (electrophoretic separation and electroosmotics), external pressure sources, centrifugal effects, and passive capillary flow were being investigated.
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.
(1976) Electrokinetic phenomena associated with earthquake.
Electrokinetic phenomena are induced by the relative motion between a fluid and a solid surface and are directly related to the existence of an electric double layer between the fluid and the solid surface.
In 1909, Freundlich and Neumann [6] provided the general name "electrokinetic phenomena" to refer to the electrically driven mass flow of dissolved contaminants and pore fluid transport in soils induced by an applied DC voltage.
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.
of Notre Dame, US) and Yeo (mechanical and aerospace engineering, Monash U., 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.
