What is Butyl Benzyl Phthalate?

Synthesis of Butyl benzyl phthalate

Concentrated sulfuric acid dehydrates n-butyl alcohol to yield 1-butene, which reacts with phthalic anhydride to produce n-butyl phthalate. Phthalic anhydride does react directly with 1-butanol to form this same intermediate, but further reaction to form dibutyl phthalate does occur to a significant extent.

Carrying out the procedure using 1-butene avoids this side reaction. Monobutyl phthalate is isolated and then added to a mixture of benzyl bromide in acetone in the presence of potassium carbonate (to keep the pH high to facilitate the substitution reaction required to form the second ester linkage), from which BBP can then be isolated.

What is Butyl Benzyl Phthalate used for?

Butyl benzyl phthalate is the most commonly used plasticizer for polyvinyl chloride. It can make products have good flexibility, but it has high volatility and water extractability, so it has poor durability.

Butyl benzyl phthalate is an excellent plasticizer for nitrocellulose with strong gelling ability. It is used in nitrocellulose coatings and has a good softening effect. Stability, flexibility, adhesion and water resistance are better than other plasticizers.

Butyl benzyl phthalate can also be used as a plasticizer for polyvinyl acetate, alkyd resin, nitrocellulose, ethyl cellulose, neoprene rubber, and nitrile rubber.

What is the harm of Butyl Benzyl Phthalate?

Environmental hazards of Butyl benzyl phthalate

BBP, like other low molecular weight phthalate esters, is toxic to aquatic organisms. This includes unicellular freshwater green algae such as Selenastrum capricornutum.

BBP has also been shown to be toxic to freshwater invertebrates like D. magna. For these organisms, the toxic effect correlates with the water solubility of the phthalate which is relatively high for BBP compared to high molecular weight phthalates.

BBP affects saltwater invertebrates significantly. Experiments with mysid shrimp show that BBP is acutely toxic to these organisms. Among the species of fish, the sweetwater fish bluegills were shown to be toxically affected by BBP. Furthermore, a rapid lethal effect has been observed for the saltwater fish Parophrys vetulus.

Toxicity of Butyl benzyl phthalate

Numerous studies have been carried out in animals to elucidate the adverse effects of BBP exposure. Long-term BBP exposure in rats leads to reduced body weight, increased weight of the liver and kidneys and carcinogenicity.

In male rats the incidence of pancreatic tumors increased while in female rats the incidence for both pancreatic and bladder tumors increased. Although BBP has been linked to carcinogenicity, studies indicate that BBP is not genotoxic.
