Separation of inorganic anions and cations on titania by use of acetic acid-sodium acetate and bicine-sodium hydroxide buffers

The ion-exchange retention behavior of titania synthesized in our laboratory was investigated by ion chromatography of inorganic anions and cations. Dilute acetic acid-sodium acetate and bicine-sodium hydroxide buffers were used as mobile phases with no use of suppresor. We observed that the titania, although poor at separating monovalent anions expcept nitrite ion in this experiment, was both an anion and a cation exchanger, and selectively retained fluoride and carbonate ions. We concluded that because of its specific retention properties there were possibilites of using this amphoteric exchanger for simultaneous analysis of anions and cations, and of using it as a selective packing material for ion chromatography.
