    • 15.1: Electrophoresis
      Electrophoresis is a class of separation techniques in which we separate analytes by their ability to move through a conductive medium—usually an aqueous buffer—in response to an applied electric field. In the absence of other effects, cations migrate toward the electric field’s negatively charged cathode. Largely as found in Harvey's Analytical Chemistry with some small changs in the section on MEKC
