Alum Success

“I chose LSSU expecting a very good engineering education. What I didn’t expect was faculty with real-world engineering experience and abilities, labs with real-world equipment, projects with real-world outcomes, and an entire campus staff with real interest in my success, as a student and yet today. My LSSU engineering education has created or supported every desired career opportunity. LSSU was absolutely the right place for me.”

Determining Phthalate Concentra- tions in Children’s Toys by Gas Chromato- graphy Mass Spectro- metry

Kaitlin Hykel

The majority of plastic toys produced in today’s society come from foreign countries, with China being one of the leading manufacturers. Plastic is composed of various synthetic organic compounds such as phthalates, but they can impose serious health effects especially to young children. As a result, regulations have been put in place to monitor the use of these harmful compounds. This study focuses on the extraction of phthalates from children’s toys to determine whether the concentrations are within the range of regulated phthalate use.
