Anal Chem. 1997 Apr 1;69(7):1267-72.We have developed a sensitive method for the detection, characterization, and quantitation of low molecular weight silicones using gas chromatography coupled with atomic emission detection (GC/AED) and gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry (GC/MS). Using this approach, we have detected 12 distinct silicon-containing peaks in PDMS-V poly(dimethylsiloxane) oil by GC/AED, and we have used GC/MS analysis to identify some of the abundant peaks by MS spectral matching.
