Diisobutyl phthalate Chemical Properties
Safety Information
Diisobutyl phthalate Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiesclear liquid
  • UsesDiisobutyl Phthalate is a Dialkyl phthalate ester phthalate plasticizer which can be used as a substitute of dibutyl phthalate. Diisobutyl Phthalate as well as other phthalates have genotoxic effects and studies shown an increase in its monoester metabolite in human urine over the years.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A phthalate ester that is the diester obtained by the formal condensation of the carboxy groups of phthalic acid with two molecules of isobutanol.
  • Production MethodsDiisobutyl phthalate is manufactured by esterifying phthalic anhydride and isobutanol in the presence of sulfuric acid.
  • General DescriptionOily colorless liquid with a slight ester odor. Denser than water. Insoluble in water. Low toxicity.
  • Air & Water ReactionsInsoluble in water.
  • Reactivity ProfileDiisobutyl phthalate reacts with acids to liberate heat along with isobutyl alcohol and phthalic acid. May react sufficiently exothermically with strong oxidizing acids to ignite the reaction products. Heat is also generated by interaction with caustic solutions. Flammable hydrogen is generated by mixing with alkali metals and hydrides. Can generate electrostatic charges in handling [Handling Chemicals Safely, 1980. p. 250].
  • Health HazardVapors from very hot material may irritate eyes and produce headache, drowsiness, and convulsions.
  • Fire HazardDiisobutyl phthalate is combustible.
  • Safety ProfileModerately toxic by intraperitoneal route. Mdly toxic by ingestion and skin contact. Experimental teratogenic and reproductive effects. Combustible when exposed to heat or flame. To fight fire, use foam, CO2, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and fumes.
