Graphical abstract for the paper NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory Summer 2017, Detection of Metallic Ions in Water: Towards a Portable Microfluidic Ion Analyzer for in situ Water Monitoring
In situ water monitoring is an essential capability needed for long-term human space exploration. Although water recycling and purification systems in use on space craft, heavy metals such as lead and aluminum have been detected above acceptable levels. The current water monitoring method for trace metals involves sending aliquots back to Earth to be analyzed. However, by the time the aliquots reach Earth and the data is collected, the astronauts have already consumed potentially toxic water. Thus, there is a great need for a simple, light weight, small, and accurate instrumental method for on board monitoring of heavy metals in water. We aimed to develop a method for the separation and detection of several metallic ion species by capillary-electrophoresis and capacitively-coupled-contactless-conductivity (CE-C4D). This method will later be implemented on a microfluidic format and provides a simple analysis system for metallic ions that could one day by used on board the international space station.
