Data were collected for the chemicals in two classes, alkyl phthalates and cresols. The phthalates class included thirty-seven alkyl phthalates believed to be commercially significant at the present time. The cresol class included ortho-cresol, meta-cresol, para-cresol, mixed cresols, and cresylic acid. The following information is provided on the two classes: physical and chemical properties, contaminants; composition of mixtures; production and trade statistics, current (and in some cases, past) uses; names and locations of producers; worker exposure and occupational standards; environmental emissions, mode of entry, transport, and degradation in the environment; and biological effects (including ecological hazards and human health hazards).
