    • Zeta potential
    • Electrophoresis
    • Electro-osmosis
    • Donnan membrane equilibrium
  15. What is the zeta potential?
    The potential difference between the surface of the tightly bound layer (shear plane) and the electro-neutral region of the solution
  16. What is the term for the potential difference that exists between the shear plane and the electro-neutral region of a solution?
    Zeta potential
  17. What is the shear plane?
    • A double layer of electric charge
    • Two layers of ions at the interface of the particle and the potential determining ions
  18. What does the zeta particle govern?
    The degree of repulsion between adjacent similarly charged disperse particles
  19. What governs the degree of repulsion between adjacent, similarly charged, dispersed particles?
    The zeta potential
  20. Describe flocculation:
    • The zeta potential is reduced below a certain level and the attractive forces between particles exceed the repulsive forces.
    • The particles come together
  21. What is the term for the situation when the zeta potential s reduced below a certain level allowing particles to attract one another?
  22. Why will colloidal particles usually move under the influence of an electric field?
    Because they are usually charged
  23. Will a positive charged colloid particle move towards the cathode or anode?
  24. Will a negatively charged colloid particle move towards the cathode or anode?
  25. Describe electrophoresis:
    The movement of charged particles under the influence of an electric field
  26. What is electrophoresis usually used for?
    Analysis of mixtures of proteins and nucleic acids
  27. What is electro-osmosis?
    The flow of a solvent when a charged particle is stabilized and an electric field is applied
  28. What is the term for solvent flow when a charged particle is stabilized in a solvent under the application of an electric field?
  29. Electro-osmosis creates a solvent movement in the opposite direction as the movement of a particle in electrophoresis (T/F)?
  30. If a particle moves towards the anode in electrophoresis, what way will the solvent flow under electro-osmosis if that particle is stabilized?
    Toward the cathode
  31. What is Donnan Membrane Equilibrium?
    The equilibrium in a system of two electrolyte solutions separated by a semi-permeable membrane with one solution contain a non-permeable ion
  32. What is the term for the equilibrium in a system with two electrolyte solutions separated by a semi-permeable membrane, where one solution contains a non-permeable ion?
    Donnan Membrane Equilibrium
  33. (T/F) a polyelectrolyte inside a semi-permeable sac will affect the equilibrium ratio of what?
    A diffusible ion
  34. The Equilibrium concentration of a diffusible ion can be effected by what other type of ion (as discussed in the Donnan Membrane equilibrium)?
  35. What equation describes the Donnan Membrane potential?
    • [Clo]/[Cli] = square root of (1+ [Ri]/[Cli])
    • Where Cl represents an ion of equal charge to R
  36. What assumptions are made for the Donnan Membrane Equillibrium?
    • Electrolytes are completely disassociated
    • After equilibrium is achieved the concentration of NaCl must be equal on both sides
  37. What is the pharmaceutical relevance of the Donnan Membrane Potential?
    Enhanced absorption of drugs via a polyelectrolyte
