Class 12 Chemistry Surface Chemistry Electrophoresis


The movement of colloidal particles under the influence of an electric field is called electrophoresis. Negatively charged particles move towards the cathode and Positively charged particles moves towards anode.

When the movement of particles is prevented, it is observed that the dispersion medium starts to move in the electric field. This is called electroosmosis.
