The boundary effect on electrophoresis is investigated by considering a finite cylindrical particle moving along the axis of a long cylindrical pore under conditions of low surface potential and weak applied electric field. The influence of the thickness of the double layer, the aspect ratio of a particle, the ratio particle radius/pore radius, and the charged conditions of the surfaces of the particle and pore on the electrophoretic behavior of a particle are investigated. We show that the effect of the aspect ratio of a particle on its electrophoretic behavior for the case where the particle is charged and the pore is uncharged is larger than that for the case where the particle is uncharged and the pore is charged. Also, depending on the parameters chosen, increasing the aspect ratio of a particle can either promote or hinder its movement, which is not reported in previous studies, and can play a role in electrophoresis measurements. Because both the electric and the flow fields in the gap between the particle and the pore are mediated by those near the top and the end of the particle, the end effect is large when the double layer is thick. ? 2004 Elsevier Inc.
