General expressions for electrokinetic phenomena of relevance in biology are derived using the methods of irreversible thermodynamics and Onsager coefficients, not only for a Helmholtz-Smoluchowski model but also for a factional model and the model of Schmid. These last two models would seem to be more appropriate for biological cell membranes.Some applications of these expressions to plant physiology include the following: the pressure contribution of electro-osmosis to the turgor of Nitella… CONTINUE READING
