- Using ion exchange chromatography, the dependence of the chlorine isotope separation on the degree of cross linkage of a strongly basic anion exchange resin was investigated. With increasing degree of cross linkage the elementary separation effect for the two stable isotopes ³⁵Cl and ³⁷Cl increases. In all experiments ³⁵Cl- is enriched in the resin phase, whereas ³⁷Cl- is enriched in the solution, using 0.1 M NaNO₃ as an eluant. Within the degree of cross linkage of 2 to 10 per cent investigated, there is a linear correlation of the elementary separation effect of the chlorine isotopes with the selectivity coefficient between the ions NO₃- and Cl-. The results show that the electrolyte behavior of anionic isotope exchange reactions is comparable with that of cations. The ³⁵Cl/³⁷Cl isotope ratio is determined using thermal ionization mass spectrometry.
