Dibutyl phthalate is a phthalate ester that is the diester obtained by the formal condensation of the carboxy groups of phthalic acid with two molecules of butan-1-ol. Dibutyl phthalate was extensively used in industry in such products as plastic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) piping, various varnishes and lacquers, safety glass, nail polishes, paper coatings, dental materials, plastic food wrap, and pharmaceuticals.
