Validation of methodologies for the release of di-isononylphthalate (DINP) in saliva simulant from toys
Phthalates are typically used as softeners in soft polyvinyl chloride (PVC) toys and childcare articles. There have recently been renewed health concerns regarding these substances which have given rise to the need of not only estimating the in-vivo potential exposure of infants to a variety of phthalates via mouthing of such toys, but also developing the means to test these toys using mechanical means for quality or enforcement purposes. A delicate problem in estimating such migration is thus to reproduce the migration from physiological dynamics such as chewing or gnawing by artificial means using mechanical devices.
