Electrokinetic Phenomena emphasizes the impact of methods such as capillary zone electrophoresis, capillary electrochromatography, and capillary gel electrophoresis on the analysis of biomolecules. This reference reveals the electrokinetic phenomena that underlie high-performance electro-based analytical tools and vividly depicts how electrodriven analytical tools revolutionize and expedite chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotechnological analysis. An authoritative overview, the book provides effective pathways for large-scale biomedical applications and describes how microfabricated and automated devices enhance and accelerate the analysis of biologically important molecules.

“This book provides an excellent summary of contemporary electrophoretic techniques and methodologies currently in widespread use in analytical chemistry. … The chapters are written by one or several experts in the field who come from both academia and industry. Individually, they provide thorough, up-to-date, and well-referenced treatments of specialized topics. … The book should be of considerable value to all investigators who use electrophoresis in their research or in the classroom, which represents a significant fraction of analytical, biophysical, and biochemists. … I think it is an excellent book that everyone who works in the field of electrophoresis will want to either own or have access too. It has my enthusiastic endorsement.”
