1. Diisononyl ortho-phthalate (DINP) phthalate isononylphtalate
2.Bis (2-ethylhexyl) ortho-phthalate (DEHP) phthalate (2 - ethylhexyl) ester
3. Di-n-butyl ortho-phthalate (DBP)-n-butyl phthalate
4. Diisodecyl ortho-phthalate (DIDP) phthalate esters Kwai
5. Di-iso-butyl ortho-phthalate (DIBP) of diisobutyl phthalate
6. Benzyl-n-butyl ortho-phthalate (BBP) Benzyl butyl phthalate
7. Di-n-octyl ortho-phthalate (DNOP) n-octyl phthalate
8. Diisooctyl ortho-phthalate (DIOP) Dioctyl phthalate
9. Dimethyl ortho-phthalate (DMP), dimethyl phthalate
10. Dinonyl ortho-phthalate (DNNP) n-nonyl phthalate
11. Dinheptyl ortho-phthalate (DHP) heptyl phthalate ester
12. Diphenyl ortho-phthalate (DPP) amyl acetate phthalate
13. Dicthyl ortho-phthalate (DEP), diethyl phthalate
14. Dicyclohexyl ortho-phthalate (DCHP) dicyclohexyl phthalate esters
15. Di-propyl ortho-phthalate (DPRP) propyl phthalate
16. Diisonoyl adipate (DINA), dinonyl phthalate

In Phthalates Phthalates detection, according to the EU requirements to protect the health of children in children's toys, 3P/6P/16P the content can not exceed its standard requirements, otherwise, their products can not be exported to the EU and other places, we usually called free 3P/6P/16P (non-3P/non6P/non-16P).
