Organic acids in addition to standard anions in monoethylene glycol (MEG) applying a Dose-in Gradient

The separation of short-chain organic acids from fluoride and chloride requires diluted eluents. These weak eluents, however, induce long retention times for divalent anions. Adding a stronger eluent later in the separation sequence by use of a Dose-in Gradient makes these anions elute more rapidly. Furthermore, the Dose-in Gradient offers the advantage of low equipment and technical expense.
