Application Note: Determination of Iopromide in Environmental Waters by Ion Chromatography-ICP-MS
22 November 2012

Iopromide is an iodinated contrast medium (ICM), which is used to image internal body organs and blood vessels by x-ray of CT scanning. Recent studies indicate that iopromide and other ICMs can form toxic iodinated disinfection byproducts during oxidation and disinfection water treatment processes. This application note describes the optimized conditions for sensitive and reproducible analysis of sub-ppb level of iopromide in environmental water extracts, using an Agilent 1260 LC coupled to and Agilent 7700x ICP-MS.
