Whether in capillaries or within channels on microfluidic chips, (bio)analytical analyses that employ voltage-driven mass transport mechanisms have become increasingly popular in the past two decades. Rapid and efficient electrophoretic analyses of nano- and sub-nanoliter volumes of sample can often be performed with analysis times in the minute to sub-minute time frame, while producing minimal waste. Moreover, the continued development of novel sample introduction and handling schemes, creative approaches to in-line sample pretreatment and concentration, the coupling of multiple-dimensional analyses, and the interfacing of electrophoretic assays with powerful and sensitive modes of detection make electro-driven analyses attractive to an increasingly broad range of scientists.
This Special Issue is intended to highlight recent developments in the use of electrically-driven analytical assays, including but not limited to CZE, CGE, MEKC, EMMA, cIEF, and ITP, performed on any platform (capillary, chip, paper, etc.). Fundamental and applied work will be equally welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Separations is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
