Octyl p-Methoxycinnamate Detection Method

CN201711085814.X reported a detection method for octyl p-methoxycinnamate in textiles, comprising the following steps:

The first step, sampling from the textile: use stainless steel scissors to cut the sample into small rectangular pieces with a diagonal length not greater than 5mm.

In the second step, 1.0 g of the chopped sample was weighed and placed in a 40 mL container (reaction tube in this example), then 10 mL of methanol was added to the container, and the container was placed in an ultrasonic cleaner for ultrasonic extraction for 30 min. Ultrasonic frequency is 50kHz, ultrasonic temperature is 25 ℃, obtains extract;

In the third step, the extract obtained in the second step is filtered to obtain the liquid to be tested. Specifically, 1 mL of the extract is filtered with a 0.45 μm organic filter membrane into a sample bottle;

In the fourth step, the liquid to be tested obtained in the third step is analyzed by an ultra-high performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometer (UPLC-MSMS). Wherein, the model of the ultra-high performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometer is WatersAcquityHClass+XevoTQD, and the chromatographic column model is WatersBEHC18 column, and the specification of the chromatographic column is 50mm×2.1mm×1.7μm (column length is 50mm, and the particle size of the filler is 50mm×2.1mm×1.7μm). is 1.7 μm, and the inner diameter of the column is 2.1 mm).

The test conditions of the ultra-high performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometer are: the injection volume is 5 μl; the flow rate is 0.2 mL/min; the elution process adopts the gradient elution procedure; the acquisition mode is the positive ion MRM mode; the capillary voltage is 0.5KV; the desolvation gas flow rate is 900L/h; the desolvation gas temperature is 400°C; the parent ion is 291.1, the cone voltage is 15V, the quantitative product ion is 179.1, and the collision energy is 8V; the qualitative product ion is 161.1, and the collision energy is 15V; ​​quantitative transition 291.1→179.1, qualitative transition 291.1→161.1.

Specifically, the gradient elution procedure is shown in Table 1:

Table 1: Gradient elution procedure.

The flow rate of gradient elution was 0.2 mL/min.

By adopting the method of the invention, octyl p-methoxycinnamate and impurities can be efficiently separated, and the qualitative and quantitative analysis of octyl p-methoxycinnamate can be carried out quickly and accurately.

Application of Octyl P-Methoxycinnamate

Octyl P-Methoxycinnamate Environmental Fate/Exposure Summary

Octinoxate’s manufacturing and also use as a component in sunscreens and also cosmetics might result in its release into the environment with numerous waste streams. If launched right into air, an estimated vapor stress of 2.3X10-5 mm Hg at 25 ° C shows that octoate salts will certainly exist in both vapor as well as particle stages in the environment. The gas-phase octoate weakens in the atmosphere by reacting with photochemically created hydroxyl radicals; the half-life of this reaction in air is approximated to be 7.2 hrs. Gas-phase octoate will certainly likewise be weakened in the environment by response with ozone; the half-life of this response in air is estimated to be 20 hrs. The particulate stage octoate will be eliminated from the atmosphere by wet or dry deposition. Octinoxate absorbs light at wavelengths more than 310 nm and also might consequently be prone to direct photolysis by sunlight. Based on an estimated Koc of 8,600, octinoxate is expected to have no mobility if launched right into dirt. Based on the approximated Henry’s Legislation constant of 8.5X10-6 atm-cu m/mole, volatilization from wet soil surface areas is anticipated to be a vital destiny process. However, adsorption to soil is anticipated to attenuate volatilization. Based upon its vapour stress, Octinoxate is not expected to evaporate from dry soil surface areas. Utilizing OECD Standard 301 F (Prepared Biodegradability: Stress Breathometry Test), the unadapted activated sludge inoculum deteriorated 78% over a 28-day exposure period. If launched to the approximated Koc, octinoxate is expected to adsorb right into put on hold solids and debris. Based on the estimated Henry’s Legislation constant for this compound, volatilization from the water surface area is anticipated to be a crucial fate process. The approximated volatilization half-lives for the design river and also version lake are 7.6 days and also 60 days, specifically. Nevertheless, volatile columns at the water surface area are expected to be damaged by adsorption to suspended solids and sediments in the water. When adsorption is considered, the volatilization half-life of the design fish pond has to do with 6 years. The BCF values determined in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) were 174 and 433, respectively, suggesting a high bioconcentration capacity in water microorganisms. Hydrolysis half-life is more than one year at pH 5-9 as well as 20 ° C. Direct photolysis half-life in aqueous service is 1-9 days. Work direct exposure to octinoxate may occur with skin contact with the compound in work environments where octinoxate is produced or used. The general populace might be subjected to octoate via skin contact with this substance in consumer products such as cosmetics and sun blocks.
