Ion chromatography (IC) has been available commercially for
more than 25 years and can therefore be considered a
mature analytical technique. But, if this description conjures
up an image of a technique whose development has slowed to
an incremental level, nothing could be further from the truth.
The pace of technological change in IC has accelerated dramatically
over the past five years, and there are further developments
on the horizon to whet the appetite of even the most
demanding user. Before looking at these developments, we should
first cover the basics of IC. IC is a high-performance ion-exchange technique for the separation
and quantification of low-molecular-weight ions (1–4). Typically,
IC is used for the determination of inorganic anions and
cations, and it is the premier method used for anions in modern
analytical chemistry. IC therefore finds widespread use in fields
as diverse as environmental, clinical, and industrial analysis.
