Electrokinetic chromatography (EKC) is a prevalent analytical separation technique first introduced by Terabe et al. in 1984. EKC is a modification of capillary electrophoresis in which analytes are separated via selective interactions between analytes and an ionic pseudostationary phase (PSP) dispersed in the background electrolyte (BGE) buffer which fills the capillary. Application of an electric field of several hundred volts per cm on the capillary induces electroosmotic flow (EOF) of the BGE and mobility of the PSP. Various ionic PSPs are capable of fast, selective, and efficient analytical separations.
