Rubber products contain some kinds of additives such as vulcanizing agents, crosslinking agents, vulcanization accelerators, antioxidants, plasticizers, flame retardants and fillers.
In general, when we perform the analysis of rubber products, additives are extracted from rubber products at the first step. Therefore, it is very important to select a extraction method in the preparation, for example the solvent extraction, SFE, the thermal extraction. The extracts that contain various additives is analyzed by Chromatography such as TLC, GC/MS and LC/MS at the second step. We suggest same preparation and chromatographic analysis involving TLC, GC/MS and LC/MS
Extraction, Vulcanization Accelerator, Antioxidant, Flame Retardant, TLC, GC/MS
