Cationic components in developer solution applying a flow gradient

This Application Note describes the determination of N,N-diethylhydroxylamine (DEHA), triisopropanolamine (TIPA) and a cationic color developing component (CDC) in a developer solution. The analysis is performed on a high-capacity column such as Metrosep C - 250/4.0 with subsequent direct conductivity detection. To reduce the residence time of the strongly retained color developer components, the column flow rate is increased after the elution of the amines.
