Application Note: Semi-continuous Determination of Anions, Cations, and Heavy Metals in Aerosols using PILS-IC-VA
20 May 2013

This poster presents an approach that couples a Particle-Into-Liquid-Sampler (PILS) to a dual-channel ion chromatograph (IC) for measurement of aerosol anions and cations and a voltammetric measuring stand (VA) to determine the heavy metals. It is shown that the PILS-IC-VA is an invaluable contribution for investigating the composition, transport, and evolution of atmospheric aerosols and is highly suited for long-term unattended field use in remote regions.
