As a result of concerns over the potential effect of chronic phthalate exposure on human health, regulations were established defining the type and level of phthalates allowable in toys and other children's products. Industries which use polymers to produce children's products must monitor the presence and amount of phthalates. Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) is an excellent instrumental platform for this analysis.

Application Note

GC/MS Analysis of Phthalates in Children's Products

European and North American countries have set regulations on the acceptable level of phthalates in toys. As a result, a reliable technique to determine the phthalate level in toys is necessary. This paper will discuss the sample preparation, demonstrate a calibration for common phthalates, and analyze plastic-toy components.

Qualifying Garlic Volatiles by Headspace GC/MS

Garlic, Allium sativum L., has a strong history of culinary use due to its pungent aroma and flavour produced by sulphur containing organic compounds. Many of the aroma compounds are volatile thus suited for Headspace Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (HS-GC/MS) analysis. This application brief demonstrates the identification of aroma compounds in garlic powder samples by HS-GC/MS, as an indicator of garlic quality. The analysis requires no sample preparation, making it a fast and simple method.

Extending the Hydrocarbon Range for the Anlaysis of Soil Gas Samples

This study describes the recovery of compounds above the boiling point of naphthalene achieved by optimizing the thermal desorption chemistry for the determination of volatile organic compounds ranging from C3 to C26 in soil gas samples using Method TO-17. Figures of merit such as breakthrough, precision, linearity, and detection capability are presented, in addition to an evaluation of its real-world capability at sites with moderate diesel and semivolatile polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbon (up to pyrene) contamination, in the presence of high humidity. This research has provided a means to determine a more representative composition of soil gas.



Interactive Brochure: From R&D to QA/QC

Innovation is the lifeblood of industrial polymer development – the push to improve materials or develop new ones infuses new life into the industry from R&D through to QA/QC. Manufacturers are continually challenged to ensure effective quality control and streamline processes while meeting stringent standards. Increasingly they must design for recycling and/or reuse in an ever more waste-adverse economy, keep a watchful eye on costs and stay ahead of the competition.

In response, we've gained years of experience developing a range of analytical capabilities to address a wide range of polymer analysis needs.
