OVERVIEW

The importance of clean drinking water is recognized worldwide. In the U.S., the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established Maximum Contamination Limits (MCL) for monitoring toxic contaminants that may cause adverse health effects. Other ions, such as chloride and sulfate are monitored for aesthetic characteristics under the U.S. National Secondary Drinking Water Standards guidelines. Similar regulations for clean drinking water have been implemented in other industrialized countries. Ion Chromatography (IC) methods have been approved for compliance monitoring including U.S. EPA 300.0 in 1993. Here we will discuss using ion chromatography for the determination of inorganic anions, perchlorate and chromate for compliance monitoring according to U.S. EPA Methods 300.0, 314 and 218.7. Examples will include IC methods using both prepared carbonate eluents on an integrated IC system and electrolytically generated hydroxide eluents using a Reagent-Free™ IC (RFIC™) system.

KEY LEARNING OBJECTIVES

- Provide review of drinking water regulations

- Demonstrate advantages and benefits of Ion Chromatography to determine regulated contaminants

- Demonstrate Thermo Scientific IC innovations around simple analysis methods
