To account for the diversity of metabolites contained in plasma samples, ranging from hydrophilic amino acids to hydrophobic lipids, multiple complementary LC-MS and GC-MS methods were used.
Samples were analyzed at the CDC laboratory for the following phthalate metabolites: monoethyl phthalate [MEP, a metabolite of diethyl phthalate (DEP)], mono-w-butyl phthalate (MnBP, a metabolite of DnBP), monoisobutyl phthalate (MiBP, a metabolite of DiBP), mono(3-carboxypropyl) phthalate (MCPP, a nonspecific metabolite of several high molecular weight phthalates and a minor metabolite of DnBP), monobenzyl phthalate (MBzP, a metabolite of BzBP), and four metabolites of DEHP: mono(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (MEHP), mono(2-ethyl-5-hydroxyhexyl) phthalate (MEHHP), mono(2-ethyl-5-oxohexyl) phthalate (MEOHP), and mono(2-ethyl-5-carboxypentyl) phthalate (MECPP).
