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.

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 anal ...

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 d ...
