3 e cm for nonionic solutions, such as mannitol. The resulting current density j is: j = E/r (Alcm2) (2) The current produced results in heating of the medium. Saline solutions with a low value of r experience severe heating effects as compared to nonionic solutions for the same electric field and pulse length. The temperature rise AT (“C) can influence the permeabilization mechanism, or lead to excessive heating and evaporation of the medium. 2 r, where t is the pulse length in s. ). Having defined the parameters at the location of the cells, we can relate them to the electrical parameters at the chamber electrodes: Electrode voltage: V = E .
