Quantification of Tentatively Identified Extractables and Leachables with Mass Spectrometry and Polyarc®/FID
Author(s): Jianxin Yu, Ashley Baeten, and Scott Citrowske, Abbott Laboratories
Note – This application note describes the analysis of non-derivatized acids with the Polyarc. Free acids can adsorb/degrade during GC analysis, and thus some Polyarc RRFs may be non-uniform as complete sample transfer to the detector may not have been obtained in this application note.
