 Synonyms & Historicals
Electrolytes .
Substances that dissociate into two or more ions, to some extent, in water. Solutions of electrolytes thus conduct an electric current and can be decomposed by it (ELECTROLYSIS). (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed) .
Electrolysis .
Electrolyses .
Destruction by passage of a galvanic electric current, as in disintegration of a chemical compound in solution. .
Electrons .
Electron .
Electron, Fast .
Electrons, Fast .
Fast Electron .
Negatron .
Positron .
Fast Electrons .
Negatrons .
Positrons .
Stable elementary particles having the smallest known negative charge, present in all elements; also called negatrons. Positively charged electrons are called positrons. The numbers, energies and arrangement of electrons around atomic nuclei determine the chemical identities of elements. Beams of electrons are called CATHODE RAYS. .
Water-Electrolyte Balance .
Electrolyte Balance .
Balance, Electrolyte .
Balance, Fluid .
Balance, Water-Electrolyte .
Water Electrolyte Balance .
Fluid Balance .
The balance of fluid in the BODY FLUID COMPARTMENTS; total BODY WATER; BLOOD VOLUME; EXTRACELLULAR SPACE; INTRACELLULAR SPACE, maintained by processes in the body that regulate the intake and excretion of WATER and ELECTROLYTES, particularly SODIUM and POTASSIUM. .
Electrodes .
Anodes .
Cathodes .
Electrode .
Anode .
Cathode .
Electric conductors through which electric currents enter or leave a medium, whether it be an electrolytic solution, solid, molten mass, gas, or vacuum. .
Electronics .
Electronic .
The study, control, and application of the conduction of ELECTRICITY through gases or vacuum, or through semiconducting or conducting materials. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed) .
Polyelectrolytes .
Conjugated Polyelectrolytes .
Polyelectrolytes, Conjugated .
Naturally-occurring or artificially made water-soluble POLYMERS whose repeating units are ionizable. Polyelectrolytes demonstrate attributes that are typical of salts, such as electrical conductivity, and typical of polymers, such as viscosity. .
