Dimethyl phthalate is used as an insect repellent for mosquitoes and flies. It is also an ectoparasiticide and has many other uses, including in solid rocket propellants, and plastics. Its LD50 is 8200 mg/kg (rats, oral). Read more here.

Information On Dimethyl Phthalate From PubChem

Dimethyl phthalate appears as a water-white liquid without significant odor. Denser than water and insoluble in water. Hence sinks in water. Flash point 300°F. Eye contact may produce severe irritation and direct skin contact may produce mild irritation. Used in the manufacture of a variety of products including plastics, insect repellents, safety glass, and lacquer coatings. Dimethyl phthalate is a phthalate ester, a diester and a methyl ester. Read more here.

Dimethyl Phthalate Properties And Reference Information

Dimethyl Phthalate Plasticizer

Camphor, dimethyl phthalate, and dibutyl phthalate are some of examples of plasticizers used in MIM. The molecules of the plasticizers contain ring-like atom groups. These ring-like atom groups will reduce the inter-molecular friction between the binder molecules and increase the flowability of the binder system.

Safety and Handling

Dimethyl Phthalate Toxicity

Acute (short-term) exposure to dimethyl phthalate, via inhalation in humans and animals, results in irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat. Animal studies have reported slight effects on growth and on the kidney from chronic oral exposure to the chemical.

Dimethyl Phthalate Chemical Safety And Hazards

The major hazards encountered in the use and handling of dimethylphthalate stem from its toxicologic properties. Toxic by all routes (ie, inhalation, ingestion, dermal contact), exposure to this colorless, oily liquid (or pale-yellow crystals at temperatures below 42 °F) may occur from its use as a plasticizer or solvent. Effects from exposure may include contact burns to the skin and eyes, confusion, ataxia, clonic jerking, coma, seizures, and possibly death. Read more here.
