The zonal electrophoresis in the channels of complex forms is considered mathematically with the use of computations. We show that for plane S-type rectangular channels stagnation regions can appear that cause the strong variations of the spatial distribution of an admixture. Besides, the shape of an admixture zone is strongly influenced by the e.ects of electromigration and by a convective mixing. Taking into account the zone spreading caused by electromigration, the influence of vertex points of cannel walls, and convection would explain the results of electrophoretic experiments, which are difficult to understand otherwise.
