"The object of this study was to investigate the ion exchange behavior of germanium and apply the anion exchange technique for the separation of germanium, cadmium, lead, and zinc.
A new interest in germanium has developed because of its recent industrial application as a semi-conductor. Analytical methods for the separation and analysis of germanium in low concentrations have not been perfected. Krause and Johnson, in a recent review, discussed and evaluated a number of methods.
Most of the methods for the analysis of germanium require a preliminary separation. The analytical methods for germanium reported in the literature are troublesome and time consuming. Therefore, it was considered worthwhile to investigate any separation method which offered possibilities of time or work saving"--Introduction, page 1.
