Rapid Screening of Paperboard For Volatile Leachables Using Static Headspace-SIFT-MS

13 months ago

Combining the power of direct analysis using selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) with static headspace (HS) analysis, volatile leachables with diverse chemical functionalities โ€“ such as organic acids, aldehydes, and reduced sulfur compounds โ€“ are detected and quantified rapidly and economically. This application note describes the HS-SIFT-MS analysis of very diverse volatiles in eleven paperboard samples with analysis times of less than one minute per sample and throughputs approximately 10 times higher than gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC/MS).
