Ion chromatography can be used to perform speciation of several elements. This paper examines the use of ion chromatography with inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy detection. A new type of nebulizer, the direct-injection nebulizer, was used to introduce the sample into the plasma. Columns were developed to interface with the direct-injection nebulizer at a flow-rate of 80-100 μl/min. The speciation of arsenic, selenium and chromium is discussed.
