    Abstract

    The separation of nine mono- and divalent cations of interest in explosives residue analysis was achieved using a Waters IC Pak-C Cation M/D column with a 3 mN HNO3 eluent and conductivity detection. The apparatus was then used to collect data on the types of cations found in a variety of explosive residues including black powder, smokeless powder, and ammonium nitrate based explosives.
