Evaluation of simulant migration of volatile nitrosamines from latex gloves and balloons by HS-SPME-GC-MS



Evaluation of simulant migration of volatile nitrosamines from latex gloves and balloons by HS-SPME-GC-MS



Journal of Chromatographic Science 50(8): 733-738



Nitrosamines are a group of carcinogens that have been found in various latex products. Methods have been developed for extraction, concentration and detection of simulant migration of volatile nitrosamines from latex gloves and balloons. After glove samples or balloon samples were treated with artificial sweat and artificial saliva, headspace solid-phase microextraction and gas chromatography with mass spectrometer detection were performed. Eight volatile nitrosamines were extracted by a fused silica fiber coated with carboxen-polydimethylsioxane, and solid-phase microextraction conditions were optimized. The developed method was successfully used to analyze simulant migration of volatile nitrosamines from latex gloves and balloons. The described methods are rapid and simple, with adequate sensitivity and without organic solvent.
