Suspect Screening of Chemicals in Food Packaging Plastic Film by Comprehensive Two‑ Dimensional Gas Chromatography Coupled to Time‑of-Flight Mass Spectrometry

June 01, 2019

Cover Story



In this study, chemicals extracted from a food packaging plastic film with a series of organic solvents were tentatively identified with comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography coupled to time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC×GC–TOF–MS). A total of 91 compounds were tentatively identified in the film extracts, based on high mass spectral matching with the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) mass spectral (MS) library.

Going Green in Pharmaceutical Analysis

February 01, 2019




LCGC Asia Pacific spoke to Yong Liu and Adam Socia from MSD about the cost-saving benefits of implementing green chromatography in the pharmaceutical sector, the importance of analytical method volume intensity (AMVI), and effective practices to reduce solvent consumption and replace harmful solvents, including supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC), fast chromatography, and “cocktail chromatography”.
