||Literature survey of the toxic effects of the following phthalates used as plasticisers in the plastics industry: dimethyl phthalate, diethyl phthalate, dibutyl phthalate, bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate, diisooctyl phthalate, butyl benzyl phthalate, dicapryl phthalate, didodecyl phthalate and DAP (a mixture of C7-9 and C9-11 alcohols). These phthalates are considered as only slightly toxic after one-time exposure. Their general toxicity affects nutrition absorption: slowing down of gain in body weight, impairment of hepatic and renal functions, effects on the nervous system, morphological alterations of the blood, etc. Some phthalates have allergenic and sensitising properties and cause local irritation.
