AN336: Accelerated Solvent Extraction of Plasticizers from Polyvinyl Chloride Polymer
DescriptionPolyvinyl chloride (PVC) polymers are typically composed of resins, stabilizers, pigments, and plasticizers. Plasticizers, 30–35% of the formulation, are used to soften the polymer, increase manufacturability, and provide form and function. Extraction and determination of plasticizers in PVC material are critical steps in evaluating a polymer for an intended use. This Application Note outlines the basic principles of using accelerated solvent extraction to extract plasticizers such as dioctyl adipate, trioctyl phosphate, dioctyl phthalate, and trioctyl trimellitate from PVC.
