Effect of Gamma Irradiation on the Migration of Di(2-Ethylhexyl) Phthalate from Plasticized Poly(Vinyl Chloride) into Air and PVC Resin
The risk of di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) migration from plasticized poly (vinyl chloride) (PVC) is an important issue for patients.We present a study on the effect of gamma radiation on the migration of DEHP from plasticized PVC into air and PVC as a function of time (0-28day) at 75°C.The samples were irradiated at dose of 25 kGy using a 60Co gamma radiation source.The change of weight loss at 75°C was studied as a function of time.Diffusion coefficient of samples was calculated,it was found that the diffusion coefficient significant increased after irradiation,the sample having ESO exhibited an decrease trend of DEHP migration,which shown that ESO can effectively impress the migration of DEHP from plasticized PVC either in control or irradiate samples,the same Phenomenon was found in air and PVC.The diffusion coefficient was between 8.37×10-11 and 2.68×10-10 cm2/s in air, 8.87×10-8 and 9.99×10-8 cm2/s in PVC.
