Diisononyl phthalate (DINP) is a phthalate used as a plasticizer in e.g. food contact materials.[2] DINP is typically a mixture of chemical compounds consisting of various isononyl esters of phthalic acid.

The European Union has set a maximum specific migration limit from food contact materials of 9 mg/kg food for the sum of diisononyl phthalates and diisodecyl phthalates.[3]

DINP was listed as a substance "known to the State of California to cause cancer" under Proposition 65 legislation on 2013-12-20.[4]
