Title Experimental studies on the effect of phthalate plasticisers on the organism
Original title Ėksperimental'nye issledovanija vlijanija gruppy ftalatnyh plastifikatorov na organizm [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Dec. 1974, No.12, p.26-28. 3 ref.
Abstract Results of animal experiments done to compare the toxic effects of dimethyl phthalate (DMP), diethyl phthalate (DEP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP), dioctyl phthalate (DOP), dinonyl phthalate (DNP), didodecyl phthalate (DDP) and butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP) after ingestion, inhalation, and application on the skin and conjunctiva. These phthalates are very harmful after long exposure. Provisional threshold limit values are suggested: 0.5mg/m3 for mixtures of vapours or aerosols of DEP, DOP, DNP, DDP and BBP, and of 0.2mg/m3 for DMP.
