Pyrolysis-GC-Orbitrap MS - A Powerful Analytical Tool for Identification and Quantification of Microplastics in a Biological Matrix

The applicability of the Exactive GC Orbitrap GC-MS system in combination with pyrolysis for qualitative and quantitative assessment of microplastics was tested using both standards and fishmeal that were spiked with known amounts of plastic polymers. Indicator exact masses, characteristic for the plastic compounds, were extracted using different m/z windows to demonstrate advantages of high-resolution, accurate-mass capabilities for this application.
