Ion Chromatography: Instrumentation, Techniques and Applications, Volume 13 in the series Separation Science and Technology, provides a modern overview of all aspects of ion chromatography instrumentation and chemistry techniques, including the historical backdrop of some of the key developments. Most existing books on ion chromatography are focused on single column ion chromatography (rarely used today) or applications, or are outdated. This book covers the broad range of technologies in use and explains the advantages of each, helping both experienced and new practitioners to choose the method they need.

The editors of this book have all played a key role in the success of ion chromatography at Dionex Corporation, the undisputed leader in ion chromatography for more than 40 years, and are in a unique position to describe both the technology and its applications. Ion chromatography is the technique of choice for analyzing ionic or ionizable compounds in various industries, such as pharmaceuticals and food. In addition it is very useful for monitoring cationic or anionic impurities in drinking water.

Key Features

  • Covers the broad range of technologies currently used in ion chromatography, with an explanation of not only how the technology works, but also which commonly used approaches represent the best options
  • Provides a solid introduction for new practitioners to improve background knowledge on troubleshooting skills
  • Serves as a comprehensive overview of all approaches in ion chromatography, describing the advantages of various newer technology options over older methodologies still in wide use


Analytical chemists who are either new to the subject or need a refresher on the current technology
