Abstract

The migration of vinyl chloride (VC) into drinking-water bottled in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) was studied in relation to storage time, using a gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric method. Trideuterated vinyl chloride was used as internal standard. VC concentrations in the water rose progressively in direct (linear) relation to the time after bottling (about 1 ng/litre/day). The time of storage of PVC-packaged foodstuffs may affect the daily oral intake of this monomer, which in some cases may exceed 100 ng/person/day.
