Abstract [en]

This paper summarizes current literature on the migration of monomeric and polymeric PVC plasticizers from medical materials, food packaging, and toys. Especially highlighted is macromolecular engineering as a tool to increase the plasticizing efficiency and migration resistance for polymeric plasticizers. The effect of branching, molecular weight, end-group functionality, and polydispersity on plasticizer performance was evaluated by quantification of low-molecular-weight hydrolysis products, measurements of mechanical properties, weight loss, surface segregation, as well as the preservation of material properties during aging. A more migration-resistant polymeric plasticizer that also better preserved its material properties during aging was obtained by combining a low degree of branching, hydrolysis-protecting end-groups, and higher molecular weight.
