Four modes of HPLC used in the separation of car-boxylic acids have been discussed. Ion suppression chromatography, using a buffer to suppress the ioniz-ation of the acids, is the simplest separation system for carboxylic acids. Ion interaction chromatography offers the greatest variety of parameters to alter the selectivity of the separation system by changing the properties of the ion interaction reagent. Ion exclusion chromatography is the most commonly used method in the separation of carboxylic acids due to its compatibility with a wide range of sample matrices. Ion exchange chromatography provides improved selectivity within groups of acids but the technique requires the use of gradient elution.
