Halogen and sulfur in chlorinated and brominated halobutyl rubber applying Combustion IC

Halobutyl rubber is frequently used in the production of pharmaceutical stoppers. It is ideal for this application due to its low permeability to gases and its chemical resistance. Chlorinated and brominated butyl rubber stoppers are analyzed for their halogen and sulfur content. Halogen and sulfur compounds are released by pyrohydrolysis and analyzed by subsequent ion chromatography (IC).
