What is an aldehyde?

An aldehyde is a volatile organic compound (VOC). They are used in many industries such as agriculture, textiles or chemicals, etc. They are also the degradation products obtained when chemical substances are heated.

The aldehydes proposed in this analysis are the following: propionaldehyde, crotonaldehyde, hexaldehyde, benzaldehyde, butyraldehyde, isovaleraldehyde, valeraldehyde, o,m,p-tolualdehyde, 2,5-dimethylbenzaldehyde, acrolein, acetaldehyde and formaldehyde.

What is acetone?

Acetone is an organic chemical product often used for various formulations such as paint, varnish, strippers, glues, inks, etc. This solvent is also used in many manufacturing processes such as the confection of pharmaceutical and cosmetics products. It is also used in the purification of compounds such as sugar or paraffine.

Why analyse the aldehydes and acetone in e-liquids and their emissions?

Most aldehydes are residual compounds and potentially unwanted, present in consumer products. Some are dangerous or even toxic for humans. It is necessary then to ensure the quality of the product.

The molecules presented here are the compounds targeted for analysis of their air quality. The ingésciences laboratory checks the level of these aldehydes and acetone in e-liquids and their emissions so that e-liquid manufacturers can provide warrants of safety to consumers.

We measure the content in aldehydes of e-liquids and their emissions using ultra high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with a UV detector and a mass spectrometer.
