IC (Dionex ICS-3000)

Ion-exchange Chromatography (or ion chromatography) is a process that allows the separation of ions and polar molecules based on their charges. It can be used for almost any kind of charged molecules including large proteins, small nucleotides, amino acids and inorganic ionic species such as Ca2+, Mg2+, Na+ and K+ as well as Cl, Br, SO42- and CO32-. Such analysis allows us to study critical role of water chemistry in bitumen extraction and tailings management.
