Abstract [en]

Commercial plastics and rubbers always contain low molecular weight additives. Other low molecular weight compounds are formed due to degradation of polymers and additives during synthesis, processing, use and after disposal. Knowledge of these compounds is important for evaluating the environmental impact and interaction of polymeric materials, to investigate long-term properties and degradation mechanisms, to verify ingredients, to investigate manufacturing problems, to quality control polymeric materials, to identify odorants, to avoid workplace exposure and to insure safety of food packaging and medical products. Solid-phase microextraction (SPME) is a solvent-free extraction technique that has in recent years found an increasing number of applications in different fields. This paper presents a review of SPME technique in different polymer related applications including analysis of degradation products and polymer additives, monomer-rests, odor compounds, migrants from food packaging and medical products, extraction of polymer additives from environmental samples and biological fluids. Future possibilities are also discussed.
