Microwave-Assisted Extraction for Quantification of Microplastics Using Pyrolysis–Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry

Mars 6 zur Lösemittel-Extraktion:

Microplastics (MP) are now recognized as a persistent and global pollutant. To quantitively measure MPs in environmental matrices, several techniques are used – including new methods using Pyrolysis‐Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry. In this study, a new extraction method using Microwave‐Assisted Extraction (MAE) combined with Py‐GC/MS was developed to extract and quantify a wide range of plastic polymers and validated using different environmental matrices.
