Mass-to-charge ratios of 279, 261, 293, and 307 were selected as precursor ions of DNOP, DOTP, DINP, and DIDP
generally considered as confirmation ions for increasing selectivity.
In the earlier study, published in May in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, the same NYU investigators found an association between DINP and DIDP
concentrations and increased insulin resistance, a precursor to diabetes.
, conversely, showed a noticeable dilution-type effect, as its entire curve was shifted to lower viscosities at all shear rates compared with the above materials.

Last month, Hong Kong s health watchdog ordered a recall of the antibiotic in syrup form after it discovered elevated levels of DIDP
, warning that long-term consumption at high levels may have adverse effects on the liver.
Concentrations of DBP (dibutyl phthalate), BBP (benzyl butyl phthalate) and DEHP (di 2-ethylhexl phthalate) will now be limited to 1,000 mg/kg in all products for children, while DINP (diisononyl phthalate), DNOP (di-n-octyl phthalate), and DIDP
(diisodecyl phthalate) are limited to 1,000 mg/kg in products for children under four years old.
(34) The Act also prohibits use of three other phthalates, DINP (disononyl phthalate), DIDP
(disodecyl phthalate), or DnOP (di-n-octyl phthalate) in any children's toy that can be placed in a child's mouth or child care article (presumably that also can be placed in the mouth, but the Act is unclear).
The mean age of persons in poverty is 22.4 years and youth between the ages of 14 and 25 years comprise 50% of the unemployed (DIDP
The European Union has ordered the removal of the phthalates DEHP, DBP and BBP from children's products and banned DINP, DIDP
and DNOP from anything that children might mouth.
The key amendment passed by the European Parliament extends the EU-wide ban on three phthalates - DINDP, DIDP
and DNOP - to all toys and childcare articles.
Three other variants, DINP, DIDP
and DNOP, will be banned in toys and other child care items that can be placed in the mouth.
'The three other phthalates (DINP, DIDP
and DNOP) will only be prohibited in toys and childcare articles for children under three and which are intended to be sucked on or chewed.'
