Definitions for "DEHP"
di-ethylhexylphthalate, sometimes also called DOP (di-octylphthalate), is a phthalate made by the reaction of ethylhexylalcohol and phtalic acid. It is an oily product with a high boiling point, low volatility and low solubility in water. It can readily be mixed with PVC, where it softens the normally hard material. PVC plasticised with DEHP is the only flexible material approved by the European Pharmocopoeia for use in blood and plasma transfusion equipment.
