    Detector
    Q. If can not detect a chemical by UV-VIS detector, what other methods(detector) for getting higher sensitivity can be used

    A. If UV-vis detector can not be used to detect a chemical, the alternative method is refractive index (RI) detector. But RI detector has lower sensitivity compared to UV detector.

    Here are some alternative high sensitivity methods:

    Evaporative Light Scattering Detector (ELSD)
    ELSD provides good sensitivity for non-volatile analytes at ng level. ...
