The general analytical procedure in Method 300.1 is consistent with the original Method 300.0 and employs the direct injection of an aqueous sample onto an ion chromathograph where various anions are separated and quantitatively identified by suppressed conductivity detection. The improved detection limit was the cumulative result of both technological advances in ion chromatography separator columns and subtle procedural changes to the method such as increasing the specified injected sample volume. U.S. EPA Method 300.1 covers the determination of inorganic anions in reagent water, surface water, ground water, and finished drinking water. These anions are divided between the common anions listed in Part A and the inorganic disinfection by-products listed in Part B. The anions are divided into Part A and B since different injection volumes are specified for each group. These different injection volumes are required in order to compensate for the relative concentrations of these anions in drinking water and maintain good chromatographic peak shape throughout the expected dynamic range of the detector.
