NIOSH 5020


This test method uses a gas chromatography (FID) technique to monitor di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate or dibutyl phthalate. Dibutyl phthalate is a colorless oil, although commercial samples are often yellow. Phthalates are widely used as plasticizers for many resins and elastomers. Work with it only in a hood. This method combines and replaces Methods S33 and S40.

Analysis Type (Application Method): Gas chromatography, FID
