Electrokinetic Behavior of Microparticles and Nanoparticles: Fundamentals and Applications

Wednesday, November 10, 2010: 3:15 PM
Salon III (Hilton)

The papers in this session deal with (a) fundamental studies on the behavior of micro and nanoparticles in the presence of electric fields, or (b) how the electrokinetic or electrochemical properties of these particles are utilized for specific applications in various areas such as Biological Sensors, Biomedical Diagnostics, and Environmental Protection. Specific topics include, but are not restricted to: microfluidic networks and their applications (including mixing, reaction, separations, or transport processes); complex particles and surfaces (nanoparticles, heterogeneous particles, biological cells, soft particles); electrokinetically-directed assembly; electrokinetic effects in non-polar media; novel applications of electrokinetic phenomena (biosensors, displays, environmental or chemical assays); and novel measurement techniques (electrophoretic mobility, charge nonuniformity, forces, electro-acoustics, electro-optics).
