Synthetic freshwater recipe

A protocol (recipe) has been established for preparation of synthetic solutions that simulate the major ion composition of hard- and soft- freshwaters. These solutions provide a convenient basis for, e.g. testing of sensors in a well-defined, yet environmentally relevant medium, and for comparative inter-laboratory studies. The generalised strategy allows a synthetic solution of any given freshwater to be prepared.
