BMF 79- Trixylyl phosphate (TXP)

Trixylyl phosphate (TXP) is a UVCB substance (substance of Unknown or Variable composition, Complex reaction products, or
Biological materials), thus contains over 50 different constituents. It has no additives and is produced through the reaction of
phosphorus oxytrichloride and xylenols. The xylenols (dimethylphenols) are present in a distillation fraction of naturally occurring
coal tar derivatives, which also contains different ethyl phenols. The reaction of the different xylenols and ethylphenols results in
alkylated triphenyl phosphates with a high amount of possible isomers that cannot be easily analysed according to ECHA (European
chemical acency).
