Chromium (Cr) occurs at low levels in the environment and is widely used in industrial processes. The element typically exists in two oxidation states, Cr3+ and Cr6+. Cr(III) is an essential trace element, while Cr(VI) is highly toxic and is regulated at low levels in samples including food, drinking water, pharmaceuticals, consumer products and waste electronic materials. The Agilent Cr Speciation Kit delivers fast, routine separation of Cr(III) and Cr(VI) at low levels in drinking water, using LC(IC)-ICP-MS
. The Kit provides a proven ion exchange separation with the Agilent LC coupled to the Agilent ICP-MS systems.
