Determination and quantification of plasticizers in PVC and nail polish using GC-MS

This method describes the identification and quantification of plasticizers; diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP), benzylbutyl phthalate (BBP), diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP), di-n-octyl phthalate (DNOP), diisodecyl phthalate (DIDP), diisononyl phthalate (DINP), di(2-methoxyethyl) phthalate (DMEP), diisoheptyl phthalate- C6,7,8 (DIHP), di-n-pentyl phthalate (DPP), n-pentyl-isopentyl phthalate (PIPP), di-n-hexyl phthalate (DHxP). The method is appropriate for the quantitative determination of the mentioned plasticizers from 0.01% w/w and up for the matrices PVC and nail polish (first 7 mentioned).
