Organic acids in electroplating baths

Organic ionic and polar substances can also be determined using ion chromatography. Typical applications are determinations of organic acids in electroplating baths. For example, citric acid, formic acid and lactic acid in the g/L range are monitored by means of ion-exclusion chromatography.

By contrast, ion-exchange chromatography is used to determine organic acids together with inorganic components in electroplating baths or starter substances (e.g. tartaric acid and citric acid together with hypophosphite and tungstate).
