WE HAVE JUST COMPLETED a two-chapter survey of the major categories of inorganic separation techniques. Admittedly, the survey lacked some rigor in omitting recently developed techniques such as ion chromatography, high-performance liquid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis, and other instrumental approaches whose value to metals analysis is either unestablished or inchoate. Since these are usually inextricable from an associated measurement device, they are more properly treated in Part IV. The remainder of the field having been discussed, it is now appropriate to attempt to cross-correlate some of this information with the specific analytes. The goal here is to provide a brief glimpse at some of the aqueous chemistry of each element as it applies to some of the more useful analytical separations.
