Abstract

The purpose of this research was to investigate the phenomenon of electromigration of ions in a cation exchange resin. When a potential is applied across a solution of ions in series with an ion exchange resin column, the cations will migrate through the resin column, the cations will migrate through the resin toward the cathode and the anions will migrate toward the anode. The cations as they migrate through the resign should form bands because of their different ionic mobilities and their different exchange rates on the resin. The object of these experiments was to design and build the apparatus necessary to achieve the separation of the cationic species and to obtain data on the separation process.
