ION CHROMATOGRAPHY TESTING OF HALOGENS AND IONS IN AQUEOUS SOLUTION

Ion Chromatography (IC) is an analytical technique that permits the dynamic separation and detection of anions in a solution. Aqueous samples are introduced through a sipper onto the column of the IC. Components with a higher affinity are retained longer than those with little or no affinity. A detector at the end of the column measures the eluate as it exits the column.

Ion chromatographs are able to measure concentrations of major anions, such as fluoride, chloride, nitrate, nitrite, and sulfate, as well as major cations such as lithium, sodium, ammonium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium in the parts-per-billion (ppb) range.

IMR's Ion Chromatography Testing lab measures concentrations of ionic species by separating them based on their interaction with a resin. Ionic species separate differently depending on species type and size. If you're interested in exploring IMR's testing capabilities, click here to request a quote, or click on the button below.
