Diisobutyl Phthalate

CAS#: 84-69-5

Synonyms:   Isobutyl Phthalate; Phthalic Acid, Diisobutyl Ester; 1,2-Benzene Dicarboxylic Acid, Di-(2-methylpropyl) Ester; Di(2-methylpropyl) Phthalate

Uses: Plasticizer.

Hazard: Vapors from very hot material may irritate eyes and produce headache, drowsiness, and convulsions.  DI-ISOBUTYL PHTHALATE reacts with acids to liberate heat along with isobutyl alcohol  and phthalic acid.  May react sufficiently exothermically with strong oxidizing acids to ignite the reaction products.  Heat is also generated by interaction with caustic solutions.  Flammable hydrogen is generated by mixing with alkali metals and hydrides. Can generate electrostatic charges in handling
