Description

General description

Tributyl phosphate is an organophosphorus compound, which is widely used as a flame retardant and plasticizer in a variety of industrial products.

Application

Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.

Tributyl phosphate may be used as an analytical reference standard in the determination of the analyte in:
• indoor air samples using charcoal tube sampling followed by gas chromatography with mass spectrometry and flame photometric detection
• human plasma samples using solid-phase microextraction followed by gas chromatography coupled to inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry
