Electrochemical Treatment of Tumors
Application ID: 253
This model incorporates the transport and electrolytic reaction in the treatment of tumor tissue.
Oxygen evolution at the anode produces protons, which lowers the pH, while chlorine production also leads to lowered pH through the hydrolysis of chlorine. One effect of a low pH is the permanent destruction of haemoglobin in the tissue, resulting in the eradication of tumor tissue.
This model uses the Nernst-Planck Equations interface to predict the transport and reaction in the electrolysis of tumor tissue in a liver.

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
