An accurate and rapid systematic analysis of ordinary silicate rocks was studied with a column of an ion exchange resin (Amberlite IR-120). A powdered rock sample was decomposed by the usual method of Berzelius. Iron was extracted from 6 n hydrochloric acid solution into ether before chromatographic separation Metal ions absorbed on the column are eluted as follows : With 0.4 N HC1 Na and K, with 0.8 N H2SO4 Ti(IV), with 0.8 N HCl Mg, Mn(II), and Ca, and with 4 N HCl Al are eluted successively. A complete analysis of an ordinary rock sample can be carried out in only 3 days by this method.
