Analysis of Epichlorohydrin Dissolved from Metal Food Cans by GC

The inside surface of metal food cans is typicallycoated with synthetic resin to prevent direct contact ofthe food with the metal surface of the can. Varioustypes of resins are used for this coating material,including epoxy resin, phenolic resin, and polyvinylchloride. Separate standards have been establishedfor testing of phenol and formaldehyde, volatileresidues, epichlorohydrin, and vinyl chloride; all ofthese standards rely on dissolution testing followed bygas chromatographic analysis.This Application News introduces an example ofanalysis of epichlorohydrin dissolved from a resincoating on the inside of a can used for canned foods.
