Abstract: Waters from the Rivers Irwell and Etherow and from the Prestwich sewage treatment plant effluent, Manchester, U.K., were analyzed for the presence of phthalate esters using computer-assisted gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Extraction was with CHCl3. Liquid chromatography clean-up was used for compound separation. Several phthalate esters, i.e. diethyl (DEP), butyl-2-monopropyl (BMP), di-n-butyl (DBP), di-2-ethylhexyl (DEHP) and di-iso-octyl (DIOP), were found to be present at 0.4–33.5 μg l−1. A study on uncontaminated waters was undertaken to establish blank levels.
