This study details the development of a routine method for quantitative analysis of oil sands naphthenic acids, which are a complex class of compounds found naturally and as contaminants in oil sands process waters from Alberta's Athabasca region. Expanding beyond classical naphthenic acids (CnH2n-zO2), those compounds conforming to the formula CnH2n-zOx (where 2≥x≤4) were examined in commercial naphthenic acid and environmental water samples. HPLC facilitated a five-fold reduction in ion… CONTINUE READING
