Electrophoresis is a very useful separation method employed in a great variety of applications, including the separation and analysis of biological samples (e.g. DNA and proteins) and environmental samples (e.g. pesticide or pollutant analysis). Electrophoresis comes in various different forms (capillary or gel electrophoresis for example) making it a very versatile and adaptable technique.
Analytical Methods presents an excellent forum for advances and applications of this technique, and below is a sample of the high-quality work we have published in this area. These articles are free to access until the 13th February 2012 so make the most of this and take a look!
