The reversed-phase ion-pair liquid chromatographic behaviour of several metal complexes with 5-sulphoquinoline-8-ol (HQS) on an octadecyl-modified silica column was investigated by using a fluorescence detector. The aluminum complex gave two peaks on the chromatograms when eluents containing phosphate buffer were used. The effects of the pH of the eluent, HQS concentration, the nature of anions in the eluent, and the column temperature on the retention behaviour of the aluminum complex are discussed on the basis of the equilibria and the kinetics of the complexation of the aluminum ion with HQS and anions in the eluent. The equilibrium constant for the interconversion reaction between the two Al(III)-HQS species which correspond to the two peaks observed and the second stepwise formation constant for the Zn(II)-HQS complex were evaluated from the HPLC data obtained.
