The biosynthesis of ortho-phtalic acid alkyl esters by intact plants, in vitro plants, and cell cultures was studies. It was established that all of the studied objects produce phtalic esters in considerable quantities. Thus, the biosynthesis of those compounds is a common feature of the plant world. These compounds are secreted in the environment and create a background of phthalate pollution independently of the possible technologic sources.

Formation of phthalates during the degradation of N-phenyl-2-naphthylamine by soil bacteria
It was shown that all the studied bacterial species are capable of degrading N-PNA with the formation of phthalates, and Rhizobium bacteria, endosymbionts of pea plants synthesising N- PNA, and free-living nitrogen-fixing bacteria of the Azotobacter genus showed the highest degrading activity.


Ortho-phthalic acid esters in lipophilic extract from the cell culture of Aconitum baicalense Turcz ex Rapaics 1907
Optically active bis-2R(–)ethylhexyl o-phthalate was obtained with 0.18% yield from dry cultured cells of Aconitum baicalense Turcz ex Rapaics 1907 and biosynthesis of esters of ortho-phthalic acid by cultivated plant cells was discovered for the first time.
Bio-Source of di-n-butyl phthalate production by filamentous fungi
This study indicates an important alternative natural waterborne source of DBP in addition to artificial synthesis, which implied fungal contribution must be highlighted for future source control and risk management ofDBP.

Isolation and characterization of phthalates from Brevibacterium mcbrellneri that cause cytotoxicity and cell cycle arrest
Two aromatic esters were isolated from Brevibacterium mcbrellneri and identified as di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate and dibutyl phthalates by chemical characterization using biophysical techniques and show broad spectrum antibacterial activity and mosquito larvicidal activity.
Secretion of Phenolic Compounds into Root Exudates of Pea Seedlings upon Inoculation with Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. viceae or Pseudomonas siringae pv. pisi
A certain role is suggested for the phenolic compounds in an accomplishment of symbiotic relations of bacteria with a host plant.
Mechanism of Action of Gametocides As Agents Disturbing the Normal Development of the Male Gametophyte
The results obtained allowed us to assume that the effect of gametocides is determined by a nonspecific response of generative tissues of plants to chemical stress, which is expressed as the induction of apoptosis in these tissues.

The objective of this presentation is to provide specific aspects of plasticizer technology and market data necessary for environmentalists and toxicologists to understand the possible points of entry of these phthalate esters into the environment or the human body.
