Inorganic anions in monoethylene glycol from natural gas process

Monoethylene glycol is used for dehydration of the natural gas before liquefaction and has to be checked for its purity on routine basis. Inorganic anions and their corresponding acids are corrosive. Therefore, they have to be kept at minimum level. The separation is performed on a microbore Metrosep A Supp 16 - 250/2.0 column and quantified by conductivity detection after sequential suppression.
