Foreword
ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards
bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out
through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical
committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International
organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.
ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of
electrotechnical standardization.
The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are
described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the
different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the
editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).
Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of
patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of
any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or
on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/ patents).
Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not
constitute an endorsement.
For an explanation of the voluntary nature of standards, the meaning of ISO specific terms and
expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to the
World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT), see www .iso .org/
iso/ foreword .html.
This document was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 216, Footwear, in collaboration with
the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) Technical Committee CEN/TC 309, Footwear, in
accordance with the Agreement on technical cooperation between ISO and CEN (Vienna Agreement).
This first edition of ISO 16181-1, together with ISO 16181-2, cancels and replaces ISO/TS 16181:2011,
which has been technically revised.
The main changes compared to the previous edition are as follows:
— addition of number of phthalates from 7 to 26;
— addition of new Clause 2 and Clause 3, and renumbering of subsequent clauses;
— replacement of “n-hexane/acetone” with “toluene” and alternative “tetrahydrofuran” as extraction
solution;
— splitting of former Clause 3 into Clauses 5 and 6, with technical modification;
— technical revision of Clauses 4 and 5;
— deletion of 5.2.4;
— addition of Clause 9;
— addition of Annex D.
Any feedback or questions on this document should be directed to the user’s national standards body. A

Determination of phthalate with solvent extraction
WARNING — The use of this document can involve hazardous materials, operations and
equipment. It does not purport to address all of the safety or environmental problems associated
with its use. It is the responsibility of users of this document to take appropriate measures
to ensure the safety and health of personnel and the environment prior to application of the
document, and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations for this purpose.
1 Scope
This document specifies a test method to determine the qualitative and quantitative presence of
phthalate compounds (see Annex A) in footwear and footwear components.
NOTE 1 A list of relevant materials potentially containing phthalates can be found in ISO/TR 16178:2012,
Annex A or in CEN/TR 16417.
NOTE 2 This test method can also be used to determine phthalates other than those listed in Annex A, subject
to validation.
2 Normative references
The following documents are referred to in the text in such a way that some or all of their content
constitutes requirements of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For
undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.
ISO 4787:2010, Laboratory glassware — Volumetric instruments — Methods for testing of capacity

3 Terms and definitions
No terms and definitions are listed in this document.
ISO and IEC maintain terminological databases for use in standardization at the following addresses:
— ISO Online browsing platform: available at https:// www .iso .org/ obp
— IEC Electropedia: available at http:// www .electropedia .org/
4 Principle
The test sample is extracted using toluene at 60 °C in an ultrasonic bath for 1 h. An aliquot is then
analysed using a gas chromatograph (GC) with a mass selective detector (MS).
All the abbreviations of phthalates used are given in Annex A.
When compared with ISO 16181-2, the two analytical methods should give similar trends but not
necessarily the same absolute result. Therefore, in cases of dispute, the method in this document shall
be used in preference to ISO 16181-2.

5 Reagents
5.1 Chemicals
Unless otherwise specified, use only reagents of recognized analytical grade.
1)
5.1.1 Toluene, Chemical Abstract Service Registry Number® ( CAS RN®): 108-88-3.
5.1.2 Internal standard
Either of the following chemicals can be used as internal standard:
— Bis (2-Ethylhexyl) phtalates-3,4,5,6-D4 (CAS RN®: 93951-87-2);
— Diphenylphthalate (CAS RN® 84-62-8)
NOTE 1 Diphenylphthalate gives appropriate results in case of DEHP <1 %. In case of DEHP >1 % the results of
all other phthalates can be affected because of poor resolution between DEHP and Diphenylphthalate.
NOTE 2 Other internal standards have been found convenient as Di-n-propylphthalate-3-4-5-6 D4 (CAS
RN®: 358731-29-0).
5.1.3 Phthalates, see Annexes A and B.
5.1.4 Acetone, CAS RN®: 67-64-1.
5.1.5 Methanol, CAS RN®: 67-56-1.
5.1.6 Cyclohexane, CAS RN®: 110-82-7.
5.1.7 Tetrahydrofurane (THF), CAS RN®: 109-99-9.
5.1.8 n-hexane, CAS RN®: 110-54-3.
5.2 Standard solutions
5.2.1 Target phthalates — Stock solution
Based on its tasks a laboratory shall decide which phthalates from Table A.1 need to be determined.
Based on this decision, standard stock solution for each phthalate shall be available either as
commercially available certified mixes, individual components in solution or self-prepared individual
standard stock solutions of each phthalate in toluene (5.1.1).
Prepare, for example, standard stock solutions with concentrations of 1 000 µg/ml, weigh 50,0 mg of
each phthalate depending on the purity (Table A.1) into 50 ml volumetric flasks, fill the volumetric
flasks up to the mark with toluene (5.1.1) and mix thoroughly to dissolve completely the substance.
5.2.2 Internal standard — Stock solution
Prepare an internal standard stock solution that is in the same concentration range as the standard
stock solutions (5.2.1) by dissolving the internal standard (5.1.2) in toluene (5.1.1) according to 5.2.1.

Prepare at least five appropriate phthalate calibration solutions, each containing an equal amount of
the target phthalates (5.1.3) and an amount of internal standard (5.1.2) in toluene (5.1.1) respectively
in n-hexane (5.1.8).

NOTE 2 This test method can also be used to determine phthalates other than listed in Annex A subject to
validation.

4 Principle
The test sample is extracted using toluene at 60 °C in an ultrasonic bath for 1 h. An aliquot is then
analysed using a gas chromatograph with mass selective detector.

5 Reagents
5.1 Chemicals
Unless otherwise specified, use only reagents of recognized analytical grade.
1)
5.1.1 Toluene, CAS number: 108-88-3.
5.1.2 Bis (2-Ethylhexyl) phtalates-3,4,5,6-D4 (CAS number: 93951-87-2)

5.2 Standard solutions
5.2.1 Target Phthalates - stock solution
Based on its tasks a laboratory shall decide which phthalates out of Table A.1 needs to be determined.
Based on this decision standard stock solution for each phthalate shall be available either as
commercially available certified mixes or individual components in solution or as self-prepared
individual standard stock solutions of each phthalate in toluene (5.1.1).
EXAMPLE For standard stock solutions with concentrations of 1000 µg/ml, weigh 50,0 mg of each phthalate
(Table A.1) into 50 ml volumetric flasks, fill the volumetric flasks up to the mark with toluene (5.1.1) and mix
thoroughly to dissolve completely the substance.
5.2.2 Internal standard – stock solution
Prepare an internal standard stock solution which is in the same concentration range as the standard
stock solutions (5.2.1) by dissolving the internal standard (5.1.2) in toluene (5.1.1) according to the
example in 5.2.1.
5.2.3 Calibration solutions
Prepare at least five appropriate phthalate calibration solutions, each containing an equal amount of
the target phthalates (5.1.3) and an amount of internal standard (5.1.2) in toluene (5.1.1).
Example for calibration solutions, see Table 1.
