This study assesses the suitability of Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR) and Raman spectroscopy for potential use as analytical tools to determine the diffusivity of a migrant in a plastic packaging material, one of the key points in safety assessment of food-contact materials. Despite its relative low sensitivity, FTIR-based analysis supplied data for the material on desorption of an additive (Uvitex OB) and sorption of a food constituent (olive oil) in a non-destructive and 'in… CONTINUE READING
