Rapid Determination and Quantification of Sensitizers and Skin Irritants in Fragrances by GC-TOFMS

This application note shows that suspected skin and respiratory sensitizers found in common fragrances can be accurately quantified in less than 5 minutes. The Pegasus GC-TOFMS platform is ideally suited for this type of analysis since it can detect and quantify target analytes, (even when they are present below the baseline of the TIC—as is the case in a complex sample such as a fragrance), as well as give additional information on unknown components after their spectra has been deconvoluted and extracted for proper library identification.
