CN001941: Determination of Chlorate in Agar Samples using Ion Chromatography (IC) Be the first to rate this application

cn001941 chlorate agar samples


The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) reported chlorate as a risk to human health. In June 2020, the European Commission set chlorate limits for various foods, including the limit for algae (0.05 mg/kg). This work describes a straightforward method to determine chlorate in seaweed-derived agar products. A sample preparation circumvents unwanted gelation, thus avoiding clogging capillaries and columns. Our approach is suitable for analyzing chlorate where the final agar content does not exceed 0.5–1.0%
