Ion Chromatography Separation of Alkali, Alkaline Earth, Transition, Post-transition, Lanthanide, and Actinide Metal Cations in Waste Sludge

The authors developed an ion chromatography method to separate 31 cations in a single chromatographic run using inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry, liquid scintillation counting, and gamma counting. The high-level radioactive waste samples contained trace radionuclides in concentrations of only a few hundred disintegrations-per-minute-per-milliliter.
