a Grace company Avoiding Matrix Interferences in Ion Chromatography Using Solid Phase Extraction Alltech Associates, Inc. Brandstraat 12, 9160 Lokeren Phone: Web Site:
a Grace company Types of Sample Matrix Interferences in Ion Chromatography Samples with components that will damage the column. Samples that are too acidic for cation analysis. Samples that are too basic for anion analysis. Samples that contain high concentrations of interfering ions.
a Grace company Problems with Common Sample Preparation Techniques Dilution and Filtration are not suitable when: The analytes are present at trace levels. The analytes differ greatly in concentration. Interfering compounds and analytes are both soluble.
a Grace company Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) Cartridges for Ion Chromatography Stable from pH 2 to 13. Low IC interference levels. Requires only 2 - 3mL of samples.

a Grace company Types of Maxi-Clean IC SPE Cartridges: Maxi-Clean IC-RP Maxi-Clean IC-Ag Maxi-Clean IC-Ba Maxi-Clean IC-OH Maxi-Clean IC-H Maxi-Clean IC-Na Maxi-Clean IC-Chelate
a Grace company General Procedure for Using Maxi-Clean IC Cartridges 1.Precondition the cartridge by passing 5-10mL of IC grade water (use 5mL of methanol followed by 5mL of Water for Maxi-Clean IC-RP). 2.Load the sample at a rate of 1mL/min or less. (Adjust the sample size to use 50% or less of the devices capacity). 3.Discard the first 1mL eluate. 4.Collect and analyze the remaining eluate.
