Determination of Organic and Inorganic Ions in Beer Using KNAUER Smartline HPLC
24 Oct 2014
In many agriculture derivate products the control of the amount of Oxalate is highly recommended and required. Oxalate is found as insoluble Calcium Oxalate in many of these products. Calcium, which is an essential mineral for the human body is not easily consumed if it exists in the Calcium Oxalate form. Consequently, the quantification of oxalate in consumable products is absolutely essential. The presented method is based on ion exchange chromatography which can be easily applied in analytical laboratories to analyze anions, especially Oxalate in beer. The analysis of Oxalate and other anions in Beer with excellent detection limits can be realized easily and reasonably with an isocratic HPLC system from KNAUER in combination with a conductivity detector.
