The field of bioelectrochemistry is primarily the study of the interaction between ions, cells and fields. More specifically, it is the science dealing with cellular membranes and the forces causing ions to become displaced on the surface of or through the channels in membranes. There are a number of forces that can displace Ions, ranging from electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields to chemical gradients, to mechanical forces. It is the mechanical force aspect that this article addresses.
