微塑料

加入微塑料科学网,获取最新微塑料资讯

从包装、包装袋以及合成服装纤维到水瓶、化妆品,甚至是牙膏,塑料和微塑料无处不在……甚至会出现在人体内。微塑料正在成为国际社会高度关注的环境和社会问题。随着世界河流、海洋上漂浮的塑料制品越来越多,相关警报也愈发频繁。但是,主要问题在于这些聚合物碎片粒子的大小,由于其小到肉眼不可见,其会进入河流和海洋环境并最终进入食物链。

因此,微塑料污染的影响日益加深,许多组织正在通过表征和量化微塑料及其起源以及对环境和食物链的影响来解决这一重大问题。

Polymer Identification

One of the principal analytical techniques for identifying polymers is infrared (IR) spectroscopy. We deliver a family of advanced instruments, from the Spotlight 200i and Spotlight 400 IR imaging systems to the portable, fast, and easy-to-use Spectrum Two IR system, all outfitted with ready-made protocols, a materials library, and unique Spectrum Touch software.

Microplastics as a Habitat

Microplastics can concentrate organic pollutants such as pesticides on the biofilms that build up on their surface. These pollutants are consumed by marine organisms, causing them harm, and are then passed up the food chain to our dinner tables. Chromatography and mass spectrometry allow identification and measurement of these pollutants, and automation of sample preparation steps, such as solid-phase extraction (SPE), can make the whole process more efficient.

Effects on Bio-organisms

Concern is growing about the impact of microplastics on the marine and freshwater ecosystem, and in particular the effect on the food chain. In addition to leaching harmful additives, microplastics generate a surface biofilm that concentrates organic pollutants such as pesticides and attracts potentially harmful bacteria. This biota is consumed by marine organisms with potentially harmful consequences for the organisms themselves, the food chain, and human health.
