The project has investigated the electrophoretic mobilities of sets of model compounds to
determine the effects of size and shape on ion mobilities. Methods were developed for the
analysis of compounds in order to quote accurate electrophoretic mobilities. Using the
obtained electrophoretic mobilities mobility orders were correlated with structural properties. [Continues.]
