Analysis of Polymer Additives in Plastic Food Containers Using the Quadrupole TOF Mass Spectrometer

In this study, we introduce an example of qualitative and quantitative analysis of several types of polymer additives included in commercial food packaging containers and food packaging films. LCMS-9030 Quadrupole TOF mass spectrometer was used for LC-MS analysis, and the ACD/MS structure ID Suite software was used for supporting the identification of the compound. The polymer additives such as antioxidant, ultraviolet light absorbent, and flame retardant are essential for polymer materials. Because the performance and function of polymer depends on these additives in these polymers makes it possible to obtain information pertaining to mixing technology and new additives.
