An In Situ Depolymerization and Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry Method for Quantifying Polylactic Acid Microplastics in Environmental Samples.

Publication Type:Academic Journal

Source(s):Environmental science & technology [Environ Sci Technol] 2022 Sep 20; Vol. 56 (18), pp. 13029-13035. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Sep 02.

Abstract:Polylactic acid (PLA) is the most commonly used biodegradable plastic with rapid growth in recent years. This leads to predictable increased pollution of PLA microplastics (MPs) in the environment. However, quantification methods for the PLA MPs are st...
