GC-MS analysis of phthalate esters using hydrogen carrier gas
From July 22nd 2019, RoHS3 (directive 2015/863) added an update to the list of Phthalate esters included in the list of regulated substances. GC-MS is now the standard method for analysis of Phthalate esters.
As helium increases in price and availability begins to affect supply of gas to laboratories, alternative carrier gases for GC-MS analysis are increasingly being adopted. An Agilent 7010B TQ GC/MS was supplied with H2 carrier gas for the analysis of a mixture of 8 Phthalate esters including Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP), which are listed under RoHS3.
