Abstract

Recent investigations have led to the development of polymer coatings to control electroosmosis which adversely affects electrophoretic separation processes on Earth and in space. Similar chemistry has been employed to create polymer derivatised antibodies for use in immunoaffinity electrophoresis of particles. The effects of polymer-ligand concentration on particle electrophoretic mobility and partition in aqueous polymer two-phase systems are compared.
