Determination of Organotin Compounds in Toy Materials to Meet European Regulation EN71-3: 2013
21 Oct 2014
The EU approved Directive 2009/48/EC bans certain organotin compounds in toy material for public safety. This application note used the Agilent 5977A Series GC/MSD system to analyze 11 organotin compounds with excellent sensitivity and linearity. Additionally, good reproducibility and recovery were achieved through the analysis of three categories of toy materials. The 5977A Series GC/MSD provides a complete instrument solution to meet European regulation EN71-3: 2013.
