LONDON (ICIS)--Germany's chemical trade group VCI and the country’s environment ministry have jointly developed human biomonitoring analysis methods for methylene-diphenyl-diisocyanate (MDI), di-isononyl-cyclohexane-dicarboxylate (DINCH), and di-propyl heptyl phthalate (DPHP), they said on Tuesday.
In a next step, the analysis methods for the three widely-used chemicals are now being validated by research institute Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, they said.
VCI and the ministry developed the methods as part of a biomonitoring cooperation that focuses on chemicals and substances that could have health impacts but that have, so far, not been susceptible to precise measurement in the human body.
The trade group and the ministry aim to develop monitoring and analysis methods for up to 50 substances over the coming years.
