Electrophoresis is based on the differential migration of electrically charged particles in an electric field. As such, the method is applicable only to ionic or ionogenic materials, i.e., substances convertible to ionic species (a classical example: neutral sugars, which form negatively charged complexes with borate). Even compounds that are not ionic, ionogenic, or complexable can often be analyzed as they are transported past the detector by the strong electrosmotic flow on the capillary walls.
