Method development and analysis of cyclic and linear volatile methylsiloxanes, cVMS and lVMS, in different environmental matrices. One of the most frequently used cVMS is decamethylcyclopentasiloxane, D5, which is a high volume chemical in EU, used in personal care products. The analysis of VMS serves to increase the knowledge on how these chemicals behave in the environment.
