Simulation of polyelectrolyte electrophoresis: effects of the aspect ratio, double-layer polarization, effective charge, and electroosmotic flow.

Abstract

The electrophoresis of a deformable polyelectrolyte (PE) is studied theoretically by considering a Poisson-Nernst-Planck model coupled with modified Navier-Stokes equations, taking account of the effects of double-layer polarization, counterion condensation, and electroosmotic flow. The influences of the local electric field and the effective PE charge on… (More)
