Diamond Hazard Value Description
1 0
Health   1 Exposure would cause irritation with only minor residual injury (e.g. acetone, sodium bromate, potassium chloride)
Flammability   1 Materials that require considerable preheating, under all ambient temperature conditions, before ignition and combustion can occur. Includes some finely divided suspended solids that do not require heating before ignition can occur. Flash point at or above 93.3 °C (200 °F). (e.g. mineral oil, ammonia)
Instability   0 Normally stable, even under fire exposure conditions, and is not reactive with water (e.g. helium,N2)

Butyl benzyl phthalate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

Butyl benzyl phthalate is a clear, oily liquid with a slight odor.

Chemical Properties

Clear Colourless Oil


A phthalate metabolite with genotoxic effect.

General Description

A clear colorless liquid with a mild odor. Primary hazard is to the environment. Immediate steps should be taken to limit spread to the environment. Easily penetrates the soil to contaminate groundwater and nearby waterways.

Air & Water Reactions

Slightly soluble in water and slightly denser than water.

Reactivity Profile

Butyl benzyl phthalate is an ester. Esters react with acids to liberate heat along with alcohols and acids. Strong oxidizing acids may cause a vigorous reaction that is sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products. Heat is also generated by the interaction of esters with caustic solutions. Flammable hydrogen is generated by mixing esters with alkali metals and hydrides. Can generate electrostatic charges. [Handling Chemicals Safely 1980. p. 250].

Health Hazard

Prolonged contact with liquid causes some irritation of eyes and skin.

Health Hazard

The acute oral toxicity of this compoundis low. It is, however, more toxic, thanthe phthalic acid dialkyl esters. The toxic symptomsinclude nausea, dizziness, somnolence, andhallucination. The oral LD50 value in mice iswithin the range of 4200 mg/kg. Oral admin istration produced reproductive toxicity inmale mice (paternal effects). At a dose of2% in diet, it caused maternal and develop mental toxicity and an increased incidence.

Fire Hazard

Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Irritating vapors of unburned chemical may form in fires.

Potential Exposure

Butyl benzyl phthalate is used as a plasticizer for polyvinyl and cellulosic resins. It is also used as an organic intermediate. Incompatibilities: Incompatible with strong acids; nitrates, oxidizers. Destructive to rubber and paint


Detected in distilled water-soluble fractions of new and used motor oil at concentrations of 8.6–13 and 14–17 μg/L, respectively (Chen et al., 1994)

Environmental Fate

Biological. In anaerobic sludge diluted to 10%, benzyl butyl phthalate biodegraded to monobutyl phthalate, which subsequently degraded to phthalic acid. After 40 d, >90% of applied amount degraded (Shelton et al., 1984). When benzyl butyl phthalate (5 and 10 mg/L) was statically incubated in the dark at 25 °C with yeast extract and settled domestic wastewater inoculum, complete biodegradation with rapid adaptation was observed after 7 d (Tabak et al., 1981). In activated sludge, the half-life was 2 h (Saeger and Tucker, 1976). Gledhill et al. (1980) reported half-lives of 2 and <4 d for benzyl butyl phthalate in river water and a lake water microcosm, respectively. Aerobic degradation of benzyl butyl phthalate by acclimated soil and activated sewage sludge microbes was studied using an acclimated shake flask CO2 evolution test. After 28 d, loss of benzyl butyl phthalate (primary degradation) was 43%, with a lag phase of 15.6 d, and ultimate biodegradation (CO2 evolution) was 43%. The half-life under these conditions was 19.4 d (Sugatt et al., 1984).
Surface Water. The biological half-life of benzyl butyl phthalate in river water was determined to be 2 d (Saeger and Tucker, 1976).
Photolytic. Gledhill et al. (1980) reported the photolytic half-life is >100 d.
Chemical/Physical. Benzyl butyl phthalate initially hydrolyzes to butyl hydrogen phthalate. This compound undergoes additional hydrolysis yielding o-phthalic acid, 1-butanol, and benzyl alcohol (Kollig, 1993). Gledhill et al. (1980) reported the hydrolysis half-life is >100 d.

Solubility in organics

4.73 (Ellington and Floyd, 1996)
4.80 (Hirzy et al., 1978)
4.91 at 20 °C (shake flask-UV spectrophotometry, Leyder and Boulanger, 1983)
4.77 (shake flask-GC, Gledhill et al., 1980)
