Migration experiments with polystyrene were performed in two-sided contact with n-heptane and distilled water as the food simulants at temperatures of 10, 24 and 40, and 40, 60 and 90 degrees C, respectively. The surface/volume ratios in the migration cell were set at 8.04 and 10.05 dm2 l(-1) for n-heptane and distilled water, respectively. Styrene monomer, styrene dimers and styrene trimers migrating to the food simulants were determined by GC-FID analysis. Heptane fully extracted the styrene… CONTINUE READING
