A mathematical model of electrophoretic separation processes has been developed and adapted for computer simulations. The model is used to predict the characteristic behavior of a variety of electrophoretic techniques from a knowledge of chemical equilibria and physical transport phenomena. The model provides a unifying basis for a rational classification of all electrophoretic processes.
