Crosslinked polyclimethylsiloxanes were prepared containing 0.05 to 0.2 wt % of either a phenolic antioxidant (Irganox(R) 1010) or a hindered amine stabilizer (Tinuvin(R) 144). The stabilizer concentration was assessed by HPLC and UV-Vis spectroscopy of Soxhlet and microwave-assisted solvent extracts. Almost complete recovery of stabilizer was achieved with Soxhlet extraction. High stabilizer recovery was achieved when acetone was used as the solvent in the microwave-assisted extraction. HPLC was shown to be an efficient method for determining the concentration of Irganox 1010. For Tinuvin 144 the selectivity of both UV-Vis spectroscopy and HPLC was poor, leading to imprecise evaluation of the antioxidant concentration. The loss of stabilizer by migration from polymer to hot water (75 and 95degreesC) was monitored for the systems stabilized with Irganox 1010 and the diffusion coefficient of the antioxidant in the polymer was determined.
