Rapid determination of cations in drinking water on a microbore separation column


Cation analysis in drinking water is a routine task in ion chromatography and can be achieved with a variety of separating columns. The use of a microbore Metrosep C 6 - 250/2.0 column with a high eluent concentration makes it possible to reduce analysis time to less than 12 minutes. Very symmetrical peaks with high sensitivity for the divalent cations are also achieved. Direct conductivity detection is applied.
