Dialysis at a rate increased by the application of an electric potential across the dialysis membrane, used especially to remove electrolytes from a colloidal suspension.
A type of dialysis in which undesired ions are removed from solution by means of a direct current passing between two electrodes, one on each side of the membrane.
A process by which ionized materials dissolved in a liquid, such as the anions and cations of dissolved salts, are moved across a membrane by the application of an electric field, separating them from liquids or ions of opposite charge. Electrodialysis can be use for the desalinization of brackish water.
Origin of electrodialysis
- electro- + dialysis
