Non-targeted analysis of migrating chemicals from plastics

03 September 2018

In this study, the benefits of using LC-ESI-Q-TOF-MS equipment combined with the data-independent acquisition method SWATH have been evaluated for the identification of unexpected migrants from multilayer plastic packaging materials. Identification of non-target peaks followed by filtering strategies facilitated the comprehensive identification procedure of unexpected migrants present in the food simulants.
This study shows the high potential of non-targeted approaches using high resolution accurate mass spectrometry (HRAMS) with SWATH acquisition for the characterization of food packaging materials aimed at food safety evaluation. An article about this research was published in Talanta.
