Pharmaceutical liquid formulations are commonly stored in plastic containers at all risk categories. A pharmaceutical suspension was used as model for investigating compound migration from packaging material. Two Agilent 5977A Series GC/MSD Systems were used. Fatty acid plasticizers were identified using the 7697A Headspace Sampler and a 7890A GC coupled with a 5977A MSD. Phthalate plasticizers were found using the MMI 7890A GC coupled with a 5977A MSD. Single ion monitoring (SIM) confirmed the identification of these plasticizers.
