Analysis of Anions and Oxoanions using Ion Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (IC-MS)

Main Document

Ion chromatography tackles difficult separation problems of various ionic species and typically works with conductivity detection. Mass detection as a secondary independent detector significantly lowers the detection limits and confirms the identity of analytes even when coeluting.
This poster describes how the combination of IC-MS and automated sample preparation techniques cope with the analysis of anions and oxoanions in challenging matrices such as soil or explosion residues.
