Experimental: and theoretical studies were conducted to investigate low and non-linear responses in sub-micro molar-level suppressed ion chromatography with a hydroxide eluent. A calculated response was derived using experimentally determined detector effluent ion composition data and compared with measured experimental responses. The calibration curve was non-linear, and its slope varied considerably with different instrumental setups and operating conditions. The non-linearity of the solution conductivity response was determined by two acid-base equilibria of water and carbonic acid, and fluoride ion. By using eluent contaminated with para-toluene sulfonate at micro molar level, the non-linear response was greatly alleviated.
