Transport Mediated by Electrified Interfaces: Studies in the Linear, Non-linear and far from Equilibrium Regimes

Front Cover
Elsevier, Aug 14, 2003 - Science - 323 pages
Transport Mediated by Electrified Interfaces provides an overview of the innovative use of electro-kinetic phenomena in experimentally exploring non-equilibrium regions of chemically non-reacting systems. Transport phenomena mediated by charged liquid-liquid interfaces and solid-liquid interfaces are also covered. Transport phenomena mediated by electrified interfaces are discussed in the context of a number of important areas, including, soil/water systems, phase transfer catalysis, animal/plant physiology and mimicking taste/smell sensing mechanisms.
  • Provides an overview of the innovative use of electro-kinetic phenomena
  • Discusses conventional electro-kinetics and other transport phenomena mediated by charged interfaces
  • Of special interest to those working in the area of interface science
