  • 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 ...

  • Determination of formaldehyde content in toys using UV/Vis Spectrometry

    As product safety regulations for industry are becoming stricter, more testing at lower levels is required for toxic elements or hazardous organic chemicals such as formaldehyde in children’s toys/clothing. Formaldehyde resins are used in fabrics to bind pigments to the cloth, as a fire retardant and to provide stiffness. In cotton and cottonblend fabrics they are used to enhance wrinkle ...
