EU Targets Seven Chemicals
The European Union is taking the first step toward strictly regulating seven chemicals, including two phthalates, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) announced on May 31. Three of the compounds are chemical intermediates: 1-methyl-2-pyrrolidone, 1,2,3-trichloropropane, and hydrazine, which is also used in rocket propellant. Two substances are plasticizers: commercial diisoheptyl phthalate and di(heptyl, nonyl, undecyl) phthalate. The others are strontium chromate, which is a pigment, and the solvent ethylene glycol monoethyl ether . . .
