Application Note: Analysis of Free Bromate Ions in Tap Water using an ACQUITY UPLC BEH Amide Column
12 April 2013
Bromates found in drinking water pose a toxic health risk to humans if ingested in significant quantities. This application note describes the analysis of free bromated ions in tap water using an ACQUITY UPLC BEH Amide Column. Results demonstrate the feasibility of analyzing bromate ions in tap water using the HILIC separation mode and flexible LC-MS instrumentation that already exists in many laboratories worldwide.
