CAN118: Determination of Trace Sodium in Diesel and Biodiesel Fuel
DescriptionSodium determination in diesel fuel using inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) is possible; limits of detection are ~0.1 ppm. The goal of this study was to develop and test an alternate approach using IC for the determination of cations in diesel fuel. The approach focused on the use of commercially available modules and existing standard chromatographic conditions. The challenge was to design an automated, cost-effective, fast, and sensitive method that can provide 10–100 times greater sensitivity than ICP-OES method and does not require manual extraction steps.
