The use of general purpose polystyrene (GPPS) as food packaging material is widespread. Therefore, the rate of migration of the styrene in GPPS is of interest in order to predict the potential exposure of consumers to styrene. Studies have shown a relatively weak dependence of the diffusion coefficient on the residual styrene content, and a strong… CONTINUE READING
