An Economical EN71 Solution for VOCs Analysis from Toys Emission Using an Agilent 7667A Mini TD and an Agilent 5977E MSD System

Version 1

    Application Note



    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.
