Di-n-octylphthalate Sampling & Analysis
Di(2ethylhexyl) Phthalate (DEHP) comes in the form of a light-colored odorless liquid. It is used as a plasticizer in tablecloths, floor tiles, shower curtains, garden hoses, rainwear, dolls, toys, shoes, medical tubing, furniture upholstery, and swimming pool liners. It is also used in medical equipment (bags, tubing).
The substance enters the body through inhalation, ingestion, skin absorption, or skin/eye contact. It can cause eye, skin, and throat irritation; it can also cause coughing, abdominal pain, nausea, and diarrhea. Long-term exposure in children is still being studied.
