The Donnan dialysis of cations is typically performed with sulphonated ion-exchange membranes. Factors that govern the selection of the receiver electrolyte when such membranes are used are described. In terms of providing high enrichment factors that are similar for a variety of cations and constituting a medium that is compatible with various quantification methods, a mixture containing 0.2 M MgSO4 and 0.5 mM A12(SO4)3 at pH 1 is the recommended electrolyte. For use with cadmium and copper ion-selective electrodes, the pH is adjusted to 3.5-4 after the dialysis. For quantification with a lead ion-selective electrode, the receiver consists of the nitrate salts of Mg(III) and A1(III).
