ABSTRACT The occurrence of 2- and 3-monochloropropanediol (MCPDs) in selected paper products sold on the Canadian market and the transfer of 3-MCPD from those products to beverages was probed. Products included coffee filters, tea bags, disposable paper hot beverage cups and milk packaged in paperboard containers. The occurrence MCPDs in coffee and tea filters on the German market was investigated as well. Furthermore, the presence of MCPDs in paper towels on the German market was also… 
An investigation of presence of 2- and 3-monochloropropanediol fatty acid esters in Canadian human milk samples
To the best knowledge, this is the first study to analyze human milk samples for 2-MCPD esters, and these findings were confirmed by direct analysis via LC-MS/MS analysis based on SIDA for 3-MC PD dipalmitate and 2- MCPD distearate.
Chloropropanols (3-MCPD, 1,3-DCP) from food contact materials: GC-MS method improvement, market survey and investigations on the effect of hot water extraction
An improved method for the analysis of 3-MCPD and 1,3-DCP in water extracts of FCM making use of 1-chloro-3-methoxy-2-propanol (CMP) as a novel internal standard is described, indicating that cold water extraction is the most sensitive method to detect the migration and control the risk of exposure to 3- MCPD.

Cold water was found to be more severe than hot water for extraction of chloropropanols, with the highest water extraction value obtained at 23°C, suggesting that the water extract method was probably more severe.
Recommendations for Oil Extraction and Refining Process to Prevent the Formation of Monochloropropane-diol Esters in Sunflower Oil.
The results show that the oil produced from crop hulls and the bleaching clay used are the strongest chlorine sources boosting the MCPDE formation.
Determination of low molecular weight chlorinated organic compounds in polyamideanine epichlorohydrin solution
Abstract A convenient and quick method has been developed for simultaneous detection of several low molecular weight chlorinated organic compounds (LMWC) in polyamideamine-epichlorohydrin (PAE)
Chemical Threats in Thermally Processed Traditional Food and Possibilities of Their Reduction
Abstract The objective of the paper is to review the present state of knowledge on health threats that occur as a result of some thermal processing of food products. Depending on the type and
The role of endogenous versus exogenous sources in the exposome of putative genotoxins and consequences for risk assessment
The evidence discussed herein allows to conclude that endogenous formation of some contaminants appears to contribute substantially to the exposome, of critical importance for risk assessment in the cases where endogenous exposure is suspected to outweigh the exogenous one.

It is demonstrated that 3-MCPD confirmed present at concentrations up to 9.9 mg kg−1 within the paperboard matrix does not migrate through the polyethylene-coated food contact surface and no significant amount of 3- MCPD migrates through the unskived edges on the inside seam of the paper board structure.
Assessment of 3-MCPD levels in coffee and coffee substitutes by simplified QuEChERS method
A new simplified QuEChERS method, with the use of PSA sorbent and without the addition of magnesium sulphate, was established for the determination of 3-monochloropropane-1,2-diol (3-MCPD) in coffee
Risks for human health related to the presence of 3-and 2-monochloropropanediol (MCPD), and their fatty acid esters, and glycidyl fatty acid esters in food
Exposure to free and esterified 3and 2-monochloropropane-1, 2-diol (MCPD) and glycidyl esters in food increased the incidence of tumours in several tissues of rats and mice, likely via a genotoxic mode of action.
Determination of bound 2,3-epoxy-1-propanol (glycidol) and bound monochloropropanediol (MCPD) in refined oils
A new method for the parallel determination of bound 2,3-epoxy-1-propanol (glycidol) and 2- and 3-chloropropanediol (2- and 3-MCPD) in oil matrices is presented. It is based on an improved alkaline
Relative oral bioavailability of 3-MCPD from 3-MCPD fatty acid esters in rats
Assessment of the extent of exposure to 3-MCPD released from its fatty acid esters should be performed in the same way as exposure to the same molar quantity of 3- MCPD.
Cyclohexanone/sulfonated polymer catalyst: a new simple derivatizing procedure for GC‐MS determination of 2‐ and 3‐monochloropropanediols
Assessment of contamination of foods with monochloropropanediols (MCPD) and subsequent mitigation of their formation is an important current issue of a global food security. Methods for the
Development and validation of an improved method for the determination of chloropropanols in paperboard food packaging by GC-MS
The derivatisation procedure was optimised; the cost and time of the analysis were reduced by using 10 times less sample, solvents and reagents than in previously described methods; and the validation data demonstrate that the method is precise and reliable.
