ion chromatography

A form of high-pressure liquid chromatography using a conductivity detector where a combination of weak ionic solvents are used to separate anions and cations of a solution, with the contribution of the solvent to conductivity suppressed just prior to detection. The technique is useful for measuring anions such as sulfate, nitrate, and chloride in hydrometeors.
