A chemical formula is a way of presenting information about the chemical proportions of atoms that constitute a particular chemical compound or molecule, using chemical element symbols, numbers, and sometimes also other symbols, such as parentheses, dashes, brackets, commas and plus (+) and minus (−) signs.
Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) is prepared by esterification process of isobutanol and phthalic anhydride.
A directive is a legal act of the European Union which requires member states to achieve a particular result without dictating the means of achieving that result.
Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that can interfere with endocrine (or hormone) systems at certain doses.
Enterobacter is a genus of common Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacteria of the family Enterobacteriaceae.

Half-life (symbol t1⁄2) is the time required for a quantity to reduce to half its initial value.
In chemistry, Henry's law is a gas law that states that the amount of dissolved gas is proportional to its partial pressure in the gas phase.
Hydrolysis is a term used for both an electro-chemical process and a biological one.
A landfill site (also known as a tip, dump, rubbish dump, garbage dump or dumping ground and historically as a midden) is a site for the disposal of waste materials by burial.
