During the course of our analysis of fish and other aquatic materials for pesticide residues, unknown components were often detected. Concern about the identity of late eluting gas-liquid chromatographic (GLC) peaks in fish and water extracts led to the identification of phthalic acid esters (PAEs) as environmental contaminants (1). Further study of these contaminants with a GLC-mass spectrometer (GLC-MS) led to their identification as di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP) and di-n-butyl phthalate… CONTINUE READING
