Glycol ethers are a group of compounds used as solvents having a high boiling point. Most glycol ether compounds are clear, colourless and liquid. They are used mainly for resins, paints, papers, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products.
Recent studies have suggested that overexposure to glycol ethers can be dangerous for human health. As some members of this family of compounds evaporate quickly and can easily reach hazardous level in air, it is very important to quantify their concentration not only in raw materials, but also in both indoor and outdoor environment. Besides, according to regulatory methods, in order to obtain improved analytical collection and recovery results, it is important to reduce the  degradation, decomposition and the hydrolysis of analytes.
The following analysis shows how to achieve these goals through the use of Master TD Thermal Desorber.
