  • The movement of ionic solutions is an essential part of biology and technology. Fluidics, from nano- to micro- to microfluidics, is a burgeoning area of technology which is all about the movement of ionic solutions, on various scales. Many cells, tissues, and organs of animals and plants depend on osmosis, as the movement of fluids is called in biology. Indeed, the movement of fluids through channel proteins (that have a hole down their middle) is fluidics on an atomic scale. Ionic fluids are… CONTINUE READING
