Phthalate Di-isodecyl & Di-isononyl phthalates

1. What are the properties of DIDP and DINP?

    The source document for this Digest states:

    DIDP

    IDENTIFICATION OF THE SUBSTANCE

    In this risk assessment report two di “isodecyl” phthalate products (hereafter referred to as DIDP) are evaluated. There are two different CAS numbers. Following specific information from the European Council for Plasticizers & Intermediates, these two products are prepared essentially from the same feed, through an identical olefin oligomerisation process and through similar alcohol manufacturing and phthalate esterification processes. The two phthalates are therefore considered fully interchangeable within their whole range of the market end-uses. Only one risk assessment is performed for the two compounds.

    CAS Number: 68515-49-1 and 26761-40-0
    EINECS Number: 271-091-4 and 247-977-1
    IUPAC Name: 1,2-Benzenedicarboxylic acid, di-C9-11 branched alkyl esters, C9 rich and di-“isodecyl” phthalate
    Molecular weight: Average 446.68
    Molecular formula: C28H46O4 (average)
