phthalate esters in soft drinks

Determination of Phthalate Esters in Soft Drinks

There have been reports from the U. S. Food and Drug Administration that certain foods and beverages, particularly fruit juices, contain high levels of phthalates. In some cases, deliberate adulteration of soft drinks with phthalate esters has been reported, thus the need for an analytical procedure for quantitative analysis of phthalate esters.
