CHEBI:34687 - dibutyl phthalate

Main ChEBI Ontology Automatic Xrefs Reactions Pathways Models
ChEBI Name dibutyl phthalate
Definition 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. Although used extensively as a plasticiser, it is a ubiquitous environmental contaminant that poses a risk to humans.

Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): environmental contaminant
Any minor or unwanted substance introduced into the environment that can have undesired effects.
Biological Role(s): teratogenic agent
A role played by a chemical compound in biological systems with adverse consequences in embryo developments, leading to birth defects, embryo death or altered development, growth retardation and functional defect.
Any intermediate or product resulting from metabolism. The term 'metabolite' subsumes the classes commonly known as primary and secondary metabolites.
EC (alpha-glucosidase) inhibitor
An EC 3.2.1.* (glycosidase) inhibitor that interferes with the action of alpha-glucosidase (EC
Application(s): plasticiser
Any compound that is used as an additive to increase the plasticity or fluidity of a substance, particularly but not exclusively to synthetic polymers.
endocrine disruptor
Any compound that can disrupt the functions of the endocrine (hormone) system
