Dimethyl phthalate is an organic substance with a molecular formula of C10H10O4 and a molecular weight of 194.19. It is a colorless, transparent and slightly yellow oily liquid with a slight aroma. It is miscible with general organic solvents such as ethanol and ether, and is insoluble in water and Petroleum ether.
Storage conditions of dimethyl phthalate
Dimethyl phthalate is sensitive to light and is not easy to see light for a long time. This product should be stored in a cool, dry and ventilated place to prevent physical deterioration; it should be stored separately from incompatible substances.
Empty containers may contain residual vapor and liquid, and there is also the possibility of danger. When this product is heated and the temperature reaches above the flash point, it is easy to cause fire risk and can form an explosive air mixture.
Dimethyl phthalate is degraded by heat to generate carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. Under normal laboratory conditions, the acetone, dimethyl sulfoxide, ethanol (95%) and aqueous solution of this product are stable within 24 hours.
What is Dimethyl Phthalate used for?
Dimethyl phthalate is a plasticizer with strong solubility for various resins. It can be compatible with various cellulose resins, rubbers, and vinyl resins. It has good film-forming, adhesive and Waterproof. It is often used in the production of cellulose acetate film, varnish, transparent paper and molding powder in combination with diethyl phthalate.
A small amount is used in the production of nitrocellulose and also as a plasticizer for nitrile rubber.
This product can also be used as a solvent for mosquito repellent oil (crude oil), polyvinyl fluoride paint, methyl ethyl ketone peroxide and DDT.
What is the harm of Dimethyl Phthalate?
Health hazards of dimethyl phthalate
When it is greater than the US TLV value, the main effect: anesthesia, it will inhibit the central nervous system, cause sleepiness or coma, etc.
Effect on skin and eyes: applying this product to rabbit skin does not cause irritation, but it can be absorbed. The LD50 of one coating is >10ml/kg, and the LD50 of multiple coatings (over 90 days) is >4ml/kg. Instillation into human eyes can cause chemical burns.
Large doses can cause anesthesia. Mistake can cause gastrointestinal irritation, central nervous system depression, paralysis, and lower blood pressure. Human contact may cause polyneuritis.
Toxicity of dimethyl phthalate
It is a low-toxicity category. No skin irritation and allergies occurred. Large doses can cause anesthesia. Mistake can cause gastrointestinal irritation, central nervous system depression, paralysis, and lower blood pressure. Human contact may cause polyneuritis.
Environmental impact of dimethyl phthalate
Migration in the environment: For phthalates, hydrolysis, volatilization and photolysis are not important reaction processes.
Due to their low vapor pressure, their volatilization loss is very small, or almost no volatilization loss.
Experimental studies have shown that organisms have an enrichment effect on phthalates. This conclusion is confirmed by the results of field studies, because the experimenters found that there are obvious residues of these compounds in aquatic organisms.

What specimen can be detected by BALLYA Dimethyl Phthalate Test?
Specimen include: all kinds of grains, food and edible oil. Widely used in feed industry and food processing industry. You can choose the right products according to your needs.
Significance of testing Dimethyl Phthalate
To protect the animal have health grain, food, and edible oil, avoid contaminated food. The excess dimethyl phthalate is harmful for animal being, can’t take too much in the body.
1. Take some grain or food specimen 2. Add the supernatant to cassette 3. Wait for 15 minutes to result 4. The details of operation, refer to the kit instruction
Limitations of BALLYA Dimethyl Phthalate Test?
BALLYA Dimethyl Phthalate Test is a qualitative test kit. It’s only for screening purpose. If have positive cases or suspected case, maybe use other detection method to make a further detection, such as, ELISA, PCR, qPCR, etc.
BALLYA Dimethyl Phthalate Test is suitable for the detection of dimethyl phthalate residues in grain, food and edible oil. Simple operation, high accuracy and short detection time are the characteristics of this product.
It can be widely used in food and drug administration, health departments, higher education institutions, scientific research institutes, agricultural departments, animal husbandry and veterinarians, breeding farms, slaughterhouses, food and meat products deep processing enterprises, inspection and quarantine departments and other units.
