Analysis of Butylated Hydroxytoluene in Food with Headspace Trap-GC/MS

Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is a common food additive used to protect foods from spoilage. Concern exists that long-term human consumption of BHT may have potential health risks. Analysis of BHT is needed for both food quality and safety reasons.

Detection and Quantification of Formaldehyde by Derivatization with Pentafluorobenzylhydroxyl Amine in Pharmaceutical Excipients by Static Headspace GC/MS

Although considered pharmacologically inert, pharmaceutical excipients have been shown to interact with active drug substances to affect the safety and efficacy of drug products.1 Therefore, there is an increasing awareness of the necessity to understanding interactions between excipients and the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) in finished dosage forms. One of the areas of major concern is the potential chemical interaction between impurities in the excipient with the drug molecules, leading to formation of reaction products. Even trace amounts of reactive impurities can cause significant drug stability problems as the quantity of excipients in a formulation often far exceeds that of an API on a weight and molar basis. Trace amounts of reaction products can then easily exceed 0.2% qualification thresholds for a degradation in many drug products. Formaldehyde present in excipients has been implicated in the degradation of several drug products where it can form adducts with primary and/or secondary amine groups.2 It has also been reported that formaldehyde can induce cross-linking in gelatin capsules causing an adverse effect on in-vitro dissolution rates of drugs. Because of the extremely high reactivity of aldehydes, a timely evaluation of their presence in excipients during formulation design is essential to avoid unexpected drug stability problems in later stages of product development.

Determination of Chlorofluorocarbons and Hydrochlorofluorocarbons in Polyether Polyols by HS-GCMS

Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) are fully or partially halogenated paraffin hydrocarbons. CFCs, in the form of polyether polyol mixtures, have been widely used as blowing agents in the manufacture of rigid polyurethane foams (PU) used as insulation products. Owing to the contribution to ozone depletion, the manufacturing and use of CFCs and HCFCs have been phased out under the Montreal Protocol (1987), however, recent studies have found that atmospheric levels of CFCs are significantly higher than expected, suggesting that production and use of CFCs are still on-going. In this study, trichlorofluoromethane (CFC-11), chlorodifuoromethane (HCFC-22) and dichlorofluoroethane (HCFC-141b) in a polyether polyol matrix are investigated using a PerkinElmer Clarus® GC/MS with a TurboMatrix HS-40. Instrument method parameters utilized in the study are presented herein, with detailed results demonstrating superior precision, linearity, sensitivity and recovery.

Determination of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in Soil by HS-GC/FID

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a series of compounds with high vapor pressure and boiling points from 50 to 250 degrees centigrade. These characteristics lead to the tendency for large numbers of molecules to evaporate, or volatilize, from their solid state into the air. VOCs are present in the environment from a number of sources, both anthropogenic and naturally occurring. In soil, VOCs are mainly derived from discharged industrial and domestic sewage, oil spills, and chemical solvent leakages. Monitoring of VOC contamination in soils by both qualitative and quantitative analyses is important to ensure that the potential negative health impacts of VOC exposure are mitigated. In this study, thirty seven VOCs are investigated in a soil matrix, using a PerkinElmer Clarus® GC/FID and TurboMatrix HS-40. Detailed instrument method parameters are presented with precision, linearity and reporting limit results.

Epichlorohydrin in Drinking Water by Headspace Trap-GC/MS

Epichlorohydrin, a raw material found in resins, can occur in drinking water at concentration which are hazardous to human health. The use of ephichlorohydrin is increasingly regulated. This article presents an analytical technique to determine the concentration of epichlorohydrin in the drinking water, in response to the requirements of the European Normative 98/83/EC, which recommends limiting the concentration to a maximum of 0.1 ug/L.

Quantification of Formaldehyde by Derivatization with PFBHA Amine in Excipients by Headspace GC/MS

Although considered pharmacologically inert, pharmaceutical excipients have been shown to interact with active drug substances to affect the safety and efficacy of drug products. One of the areas of major concern is the potential chemical interaction between impurities in the excipient and the drug molecules, leading to the formation of reaction products. Formaldehyde present in excipients has been implicated in the degradation of several drug products where it can form adducts with primary and/or secondary amine groups. It has also been reported that formaldehyde can induce cross-linking in gelatin capsules causing an adverse effect on in-vitro dissolution rates of drugs.

This application note presents a simple and effective method for the determination of formaldehyde in pharmaceutical excipients using SHS-GC/MS. The method is fast, reliable and can be used for the quantification of low-molecular-weight aldehydes in most excipients commonly used in pharmaceutical products.

VOC analysis of Water-Based Coatings by Headspace-Gas Chromatography

ASTM International publishes a number of different methods for the determination of volatile compounds in water-based coatings. Method D3960 is a gravimetric technique where a sample of known weight is baked under specific conditions; the % weight of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is calculated from a series of measured masses. The method that was presented here will reliably analyze difficult compounds in a difficult matrix with great precision, linearity, and without carryover.
