N-methyldiethanolamine, piper-azine and standard cations in scrubber solutions

N-methyldiethanolamine and piperazine are used in scrubber solutions, e.g., in the natural gas process. Testing this type of samples by ion chromatography requires a good resolution and the separation of amines from standard cations. The separation is achieved on a Metrosep C 4 - 150/4.0 column applying direct conductivity detection.
