Bisphenol A (BPA) is suspected to be an endocrine disruptor. Regulations on specific migration limits (SML) from food contact materials are getting tighter (EU 2018/213) requiring more sensitive determinations. An overcoated SPME fiber provides the durability necessary for direct
Terpenes are present in essential oils derived from plants and often impart characteristic aromas to the plant or its oil. The SPME is a convenient, efficient, and easy to automate sample preparation technology for analyzing the terpene/terpenoid profile of these
In this study, SPME was used for the analysis of free fatty acids in Parmesan cheese using a 65 μm Carbowax/divinylbenzene (DVB) SPME fiber. Headspace extraction of the cheese sample was conducted at 65 °C for 15 minutes and analyzed
The use of solid phase microextraction (SPME) allowed for the straightforward, fast, sensitive, and accurate GC/MS determination of the residual solvent content of spiked and unspiked samples of hemp extract.
High performance, reliability, and reproducibility of HS-SPME in combination with GC/MS for the determination of VOCs in water was proven in an interlaboratory trial. The new ISO 17943 using HS-SPME is an improvement on existing official methods for this determination
