Neat dicyclohexyl phthalate (DCHP) was slightly irritant to the skin of guinea-pigs and rabbits, and the eyes of rabbits. There was limited evidence that occupational exposure to DCHP fumes may have caused asthma. Liver and testicular effects were seen following repeated administration in oral studies in rats. DCHP gave no indication of genotoxicity in studies using bacteria, including Ames tests. It was of low acute oral toxicity in rats and mice.
