Following the European Standard EN 71 part 11, an economical solution for the determination of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) was developed on an Agilent 7820A GC with an Agilent 5977E GC/MSD System configured to an Agilent 7667A Mini Thermal Desorber. Excellent linearity was obtained with calibration ranging from 0.02 µg to 2 µg for 10 volatile target compounds, and from 0.05 µg to 5 µg for cyclohexanone and isophorone. A plastic toy and a cloth doll sample were spiked with target chemicals and tested using this method. The results showed superior repeatability.
