n-Hexane, PESTINORM® Supra Trace for MOSH/MOAH analysisSupplier: VWR Chemicals
Filtered through a 0.2 µm filter, packaged under inert gas.
Mineral oils are almost universally present in our environment. The main compounds of interest are mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons (MOSH) and mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons (MOAH).
Both types are easily absorbed by the human body from food and can accumulate in body fat and in some organs.
- Specifically designed and tested for the MOSH/MOAH analysis
- Tested and guaranteed by HPLC/UV – GC-FID and GC-MS to have less than 3 ng/ml, and by GC-ECD less than 3 pg/ml of any peak in the full range from C10 to C50 of the MOSH/MOAH impurities
