Monoethylene glycol (MEG) is used to remove water from natural gas before further processing. Due to high temperatures applied, glycol degradation to glycolic, formic, and acetic acid may occur. These reactions are unwanted as the emerging acids are corrosive. The determination of the organic acids is achieved by ion-exclusion chromatography with conductivity detection after inverse suppression.
