Abstract This report reviews the literature on the toxicology and ecotoxicology of dioctyl phthalate. Data on effects in humans are limited to a small number of poorly documented studies of small groups of workers exposed to other phthalates and unspecified isomers of dioctyl phthalate. The substance has been classified as having inadequate data for evaluation.
