Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis of Phthalate Compounds
Phthalate materials are routinely added to polymeric materials to serve as plasticizers, thereby improving the mechanical properties of the material. Plasticizers are used in all applications of polymeric materials in all industries, and often times in significant concentrations. Given their high solubility in polymer materials, plasticizers are often transferred through contact from material to material. Unwanted plasticizers (often phthalates) can become contaminants in other polymers or products. Impact Analytical has years of experience analyzing for phthalates in polymeric systems, as well as in final products. Our team of experts has developed in-house methods designed specifically for phthalates.
Examples of projects we routinely execute involving phthalates include:
Identification and quantitation of Phthalates in polymeric materials
Quantitation of phthalate contaminants from packaging
Investigation of Phthalates leachables from drug product container closure system (CCS)
Characterization of drug product for phthalate leachables
Impact Analytical has polymer- and phthalate-specific methods developed.
Phthalates we have experience with include:
- Diethylhexyl Phthalate (DEHP)
- Dioctyl Phthalate
- Diisooctyl Phthalate
