Analysis of Microplastics in Suspended Solids With TG-GC-MS

Analysis of Microplastics in Suspended Solids With TG-GC-MS content piece image

Microplastics are a major concern due to their impact on the environment. They often end up in waterways and oceans and remain in a suspended state, so can be ingested by marine organisms; thereby entering and accumulating within the food chain. Material thermal decomposition analysis is commonly done by mass spectrometry in decoupled mode. The products are accumulated and analyzed indirectly thereafter. Unfortunately, this often results in insufficient information on the identity of the degradation products.
