Application Note: Streamlining Current Approaches for Extractable Analysis Utilizing Waters MV-10 ASFE and ACQUITY UPC2 Systems
12 March 2013

This application note describes the extraction and screening of four different types of packaging material for 14 common polymer additives. Results demonstrate that supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) offers greater flexibility than microwave extraction. It is also shown that SFE represents a substantial saving in solvent consumption and run time compared to Soxhlet extraction.
