Analysis and determination of phthalates in the laboratory

You want to analyze and measure the phthalates present in your products?

What are phthalates?

First of all, phthalates are chemical compounds derived from phthalic acid.

Commonly used, phthalates are present in many products of our daily life. Therefore, they are found for example in cosmetics, food, paints, clothing, medical devices etc…

Generally used as plasticizers, there is a large number of phthalates, the main ones being

  • Benzylbutyl (BBP)
  • Di-n-propyl (DPP)
  • Diisobutyl (DIBP)
  • Di-2-ethylexyl (DEHP)
  • Di-n-butyl (DnBP)
  • Di-isononyl (DINP)

Why analyze phthalates?

Some phthalates are classified as substances with adverse health effects. In addition, some phthalates are also classified as toxic and endocrine disruptors by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).

Therefore, phthalates are allowed in certain proportions and are strictly regulated by European Directives, French standards such as NF EN 16521 or British Standard – BS EN 16521 .

Therefore, it is important to perform the analysis and determination of phthalates in your products with the support of a specialized laboratory.
