Definition of electroosmosis in English:



  • Osmosis under the influence of an electric field.

    • ‘Upon application of an electric field, electro-osmosis generates bulk fluid flow in the device, and a protocol for eliminating this flow by attaching a polymer brush to all silicon oxide surfaces is shown to be effective.’
    • ‘Brennan learned of a system of electro-osmosis for dealing with rising damp without chemicals.’
    • ‘This is well established by studies on electro-osmosis and streaming potentials.’
    • ‘Electrochemical methods of stabilization involve the reduction of water content by electro-osmosis.’
    • ‘In vascular plant biology, electro-osmosis is also used as an alternative or supplemental explanation for the movement of polar liquids via the phloem.’
