Application of Sample Combustion to Determine Chloride and Sulfate Content

This experiment was performed to determine chloride and sulfate in a highly viscous oil sample applying sample combustion before anion chromatography with conductivity detection after sequential suppression.

The sample is viscous oil, 40mg sample, Mitsubishi AQF-100 was combusted at 1000°C. The combustion gases were collected in ultrapure water containing 300 ppm H2O2 and subsequently injected.

Determination of chloride and sulfate (not quantified) in a highly viscous petrochemical sample applying sample combustion followed by anion chromatography with conductivity detection after sequential suppression. The sample has a particularly high sulfate content.
