electrochemical

emanating from or pertaining to electrochemistry.

electrochemical equivalent
the atomic weight divided by the ionic valence of an electrolyte. Provides a quantitative indication of the combining properties of an electrolyte solution. The relationship between weight per volume and milliequivalents can be expressed as:
$${\rm {{mg \ /100\ ml} \over atomic \ weight} \times Valence \times 10 = mEq/l}$$
$${\rm {{mg \ /100\ ml} \over atomic \ weight} \times Valence \times 10 = mEq/l}$$
electrochemical gradient
the differences in electrochemial potential between two points.
intestinal electrochemical gradient
electrical potential differences and ion concentration differences across the external membrane of the intestinal mucosa arising from the active transport of most electrolytes and some nonelectrolytes across the membrane.
