N-Nitrosodimethyl Amine and N-Nitrosodiethyl Amine Determination by Headspace Sampling

Prescription pill bottles.

In 2018 and 2019, several blood pressure and heartburn medications were recalled due to cancer causing contaminants. Two of the problematic compounds were N-Nitrosodimethyl Amine (NDMA) and N-Nitrosodiethyl Amine (NDEA). Because these compounds have been found in several drugs, the drugs are considered unsafe. This application will follow the U. S. Food and Drug Administration method for the determination of NDMA and NDEA in drug products.
