Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties



Dialkyl phthalate ester plasticizer used to import softness and flexibility to PVC products.


ChEBI: A phthalate ester that is the bis(2-ethylhexyl) ester of benzene-1,2-dicarboxylic acid.


As plasticizer in PVC applications and flexible vinyls.

General Description

Colorless to pale yellow oily liquid. Nearly odorless.

Air & Water Reactions

Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate reacts 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 with alkali metals and hydrides. Incompatible with nitrates .

Health Hazard

Inhalation can cause nausea and irritation of nose and throat. Contact of liquid with eyes or skin causes irritation. Ingestion can cause abdominal cramps, nausea and diarrhea.

Health Hazard

The acute oral toxicity is of extremelylow order. The oral LD50 value in miceis in the range 30,000 mg/kg. Ingestion ofabout 10 mL of the liquid may produce gas trointestinal pain, hypermotility, and diar rhea in humans. Chronic administration byoral route did not produce any adverseeffect in animals. A dose of 100 mg/kg/dayproduced increased liver and kidney weight,as well as retardation of growth in dogs.Mice given diets containing 12,000 ppm ofdiethylhexyl phthalate for 40 weeks devel oped renal hyperplasia (Ward et al. 1988).There was no evidence of renal carcino genicity. Oral administration, however, pro duced tumors in livers in the laboratoryanimals. It is a suspected cancer-causingagent, and there is sufficient evidence of itscarcinogenicity in animals. Such evidence inhumans, however, is lacking
Rock and co-workers (1988) reported theinteraction of diethylhexyl phthalate withblood during storage in PVC plastic containers. The plasticizer is leached into theplasma and converted to mono(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate by a plasma enzyme. At a levelof >125 mg/mL in the blood mono(2-ethyl hexyl) phthalate produced a 50% decrease inheart rate and blood pressure in rats.

Fire Hazard

Flash Point (°F): 425 ℃; Flammable Limits in Air (%): Not pertinent; Fire Extinguishing Agents: Dry powder, carbon dioxide, foam; Fire Extinguishing Agents Not To Be Used: Water or foam may cause frothing; Special Hazards of Combustion Products: None; Behavior in Fire: Not pertinent; Ignition Temperature: Data not available; Electrical Hazard: Not pertinent; Burning Rate: Not pertinent.

Chemical Reactivity

Reactivity with Water No reaction; Reactivity with Common Materials: No reaction; Stability During Transport: Stable; Neutralizing Agents for Acids and Caustics: Not pertinent; Polymerization: Not pertinent; Inhibitor of Polymerization: Not pertinent.

Safety Profile

Confirmed carcinogen with experimental carcinogenic and tumorigenic data. Experimental teratogenic data. Other experimental reproductive effects. Poison by intravenous route. Human systemic effects by ingestion: gastrointestinal tract effects. A mild skin and eye irritant. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke.

Purification Methods

Wash the ester with Na2CO3 solution, then shake it with water. After the resulting emulsion has been broken by adding ether, the ethereal solution is washed twice with water, dried (CaCl2), and evaporated. The residual liquid is distilled several times under reduced pressure, then stored in a vacuum desiccator over P2O5 [French & Singer J Chem Soc 1424 1956]. [Beilstein 9 IV 3184.]
