Abstract

Thermal and photo initiated release of tris(1-chloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TCPP) from
different polyurethane foam materials were studied using a validated GC-MS method with a
linear range of 0.34-680 g/ml. The release of TCPP from two foam types was reported and was
found to follow first order kinetics with rate constants directly related to the ageing conditions and
radiation intensity. Rate constants for TCPP release from UV radiated samples were found to be
higher than those for thermally aged ones. Migration of TCPP from different foam sample types
into the contacting body was also recorded and was found to get enhanced by thermal and UV
ageing of the foam samples. The presence of biological fluids was also found to enhance the
migration rate. Our results reveal that UV radiation significantly affects the weak interaction
between TCPP and the polyurethane material which reflects the relatively high rate constant and
larger uptake
