Identification and quantification of phthalates in water and sediment of Ori Stream, Iwo, Southwestern Nigeria using high performance liquid chromatography

This study provides data on distribution of phthalate esters (PAEs) in the water and sediments in the Ori stream, Iwo, Nigeria. The liquid-liquid extraction method was employed, followed by cleaned up in an alumina column using hexane. Chromatographic separation and quantification were done using Zorbax Eclipse AAA C18 analytical column. The concentrations of DMP, DBP, DEP, and DPP in water (µg/L) ranged from...
