Chloric acid should be analyzed by ion chromatography for water quality control, in accordance to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare in Japan. The method states an addition of 1mL ethylenediamine solution (50mg/mL) to 1L of sample collected. This prevents chlorous acid from reacting with residual chlorine to form chloric acid. Oxyhalides and anions were analyzed using IC SI-35 4D (a column for rapid oxyhalides analysis).
