electrophoresis

solution anions cations towards

The migration of charged particles under the influence of an electric field, usually in solution. Cations will move towards the negative pole, and anions towards the positive. It is possible to separate amino acids this way by adjusting the pH of the solution so that some are cations and others anions.
