Abstract Photoinitiators are widely used to cure ink on packaging materials used in food applications such as carton boards and can contaminate the food by migrating into the food. In this contribution, a fast and reliable confirmation method for the determination of photoinitiators in dry foodstuffs is described: benzophenone (BP), 4,4′‐bis(diethylamino)benzophenone (DEAB), 2‐chloro‐9H‐thioxanthen‐9‐one (CTX), 1‐chloro‐4‐ropoxy‐9H‐thioxanthen‐9‐one (CPTX), 2,2‐dimethoxy‐ 2‐phenyl acetophenone (DMPA), 4‐(dimethylamino)benzophenone (DMBP), 2‐ethylanthraquinone (EA), 2‐ethylhexyl‐4‐dimethyla…
