Determining Phthalate Concentra- tions in Children’s Toys by Gas Chromato- graphy Mass Spectro- metry

Kaitlin Hykel

The majority of plastic toys produced in today’s society come from foreign countries, with China being one of the leading manufacturers. Plastic is composed of various synthetic organic compounds such as phthalates, but they can impose serious health effects especially to young children. As a result, regulations have been put in place to monitor the use of these harmful compounds. This study focuses on the extraction of phthalates from children’s toys to determine whether the concentrations are within the range of regulated phthalate use.
