Analyzing Phthalates in Plastics using Pyrolysis

Analyzing phthalates is becoming a more popular application due to the growing use of plasticizers to enhance product durability.

Phthalates are widely used as plasticizers by industry to enhance product durability. It has been determined that many of the phthalates have a detrimental effect on human health. Six phthalates (see Table 1) are now regulated by the European Union and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. Analyzing phthalates has become commonplace and there is a near universal interest in a simple and accurate method for analyzing phthalates in Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC).

This application note will clearly show that the Frontier Multi-Shot Pyrolyzer is a viable technique in analyzing phthalates in the plastic industry. Today, many laboratories are integrating the Frontier Multi-Shot Pyrolyzer into their mainstream analytical protocols due to the advantages and immediate quality improvements this technique provides. Frontier Multi-Shot Pyrolyzer guarantees reproducibility and accuracy where every facet of the system is designed to ensure reliability and data quality. All surfaces in the sample path are quartz deactivated using a proprietary process, there is no transfer line and no cross contamination. The system also increases laboratory productivity as sample preparation takes much less than traditional techniques that require solvent extraction.
