This book is on the risk assessment of diethyl phthalate. Diethyl phthalate is a colorless liquid with a slight aromatic odor and low volatility. It is used as a plasticizer in a wide variety of consumer products, including plastic packaging films, cosmetic formulations, and toiletries, as well as medical treatment tubing. As a result of its use, human exposure to diethyl phthalate is expected to be significant.--Publisher's description.
