Scientists from Australia have developed a method for the fast and sensitive detection of aluminium in aqueous samples via reversed-phased high-performance liquid-chromatography (RP-HPLC) using an ultra-short monolithic column.
The team led by Pavel Nesterenko demonstrated that a ‘run time’ of 2.5 min could be achieved for this method without compromising sensitivity, precision or accuracy, representing an improvement in run time by more than 50% compared to the fasted method published previously.
