Analysis of Mixed Polymer Sample as Microplastics using Pyrolysis GC/MS
contributed by Shimadzu |
Fine plastic particles with sizes of several μm to about 5 mm are called microplastics (MPs), and their effect on pollution and ecosystems in marine environments is a serious concern. It has been pointed out that bioaccumulation may occur by a process of adsorption of harmful substances on MPs, and ingestion of those MPs by marine organisms in marine environments. Due to that, many surveys of the actual condition of MPs and evaluation of their toxicity are being conducted.
