Title: Suspect Screening Analysis of Chemicals in Consumer Products
Abstract: A suspect screening analysis method is presented to rapidly characterize chemicals in 100 consumer products -- whether they be formulations (shampoos, paints), articles (upholsteries, shower curtains), or foods (cereals) – and therefore supports broader efforts to prioritize chemicals based on potential human health risks. A two-dimensional gas chromatography-time of flight/mass spectrometry method was used to screen for chemicals in selected products. Analysis yielded 4270 unique chemical signatures across the products, with 1602 signatures tentatively identified using the National Institute of Standards and Technology 2008 spectral database. Chemical standards confirmed the presence of 119 compounds. Of the 1602 chemicals, 1404 were not present in a public database of known consumer product chemicals.
