  • Analysis of Formaldehyde simple and sensitive method for analyzing free formaldehyde

    Formaldehyde is used for disinfections of industrially manufactured products. However, it is detrimental to health and its potential oncogenicity led to the current utilization of a formaldehyde donor for long-term preservation. Such donors are in hydrolytic equilibrium with formaldehyde producing free formaldehyde on exposure to moisture. This method is used to quantify the free formaldehyde ...
