Quantitative Analysis of Tin (Sn) in Plastics by EDXRF

EDX analysis of controlled substances in electrical and electronic equipment currently includes the 5 RoHS elements (Cd, Pb, Cr, Hg, Br) and 2 halogens (Cl, Br). However, due the current restrictions and limitations placed on organic tin compounds, tin (Sn) is expected to be added to that list of controlled substances. Although EDX cannot be used for the identification and quantitation of organotin compounds, their detection is possible based on the analysis of tin as an element. As standard samples of PE (polyethylene) plastic spiked with tin are now commercially available, we are able to present the results of sensitivity evaluation in analyses conducted using the EDX-LE/GP (720).
