General description

EPA 506 Phthalate Mix (7 component) is a multi-component solution containing benzyl butyl phthalate, bis(2-ethylhexyl) adipate, bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate, dibutyl phthalate, diethyl phthalate, dimethyl phthalate, and di-n-octyl phthalate as certified reference materials (CRMs). The raw materials and solvents used in the preparation of EPA 506 Phthalate Mix (7 component) have been screened for identity and purity. The mixture is gravimetrically prepared and quantitatively analyzed by gas chromatography (GC).
US EPA 500 Series methods are analytical methods for identifying and quantifying organic contaminants such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pesticides, synthetic organic compounds (SOCs), and trihalomethane disinfection byproducts (THMs) in raw source water, finished drinking water, and drinking water at all stages of treatment.


EPA 506 Phthalate Mix (7 component) may be used as a CRM to quantify phthalate analytes in ambient and atmospheric air and emissions from polyvinyl chloride consumer goods by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS).
Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.

Other Notes

This Certified Reference Material (CRM) is produced and certified in accordance with ISO 17034 and ISO/IEC 17025. All information regarding the use of this CRM can be found on the certificate of analysis.
