In this study, we analyze the pollution and degradation characteristics of two kinds of phthalate esters (PEs), dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), in two kinds of soils collected from non-cultivated, crop, greenhouse, and vegetable fields from the Harbin and Handan Districts, China. The results demonstrate that DBP has relatively high residual levels in the soils, ranging from 3.18 to 29.37 mg/kg in fluvo-aquic soils of the Handan District (average 14.06 mg/kg) and… CONTINUE READING
