Is a pineapple also an apple?

OXSOFT GPO is a phthalate free plasticizer chemically also known as Di-Octyl-TerePhthalate (DOTP).

Some confusion is understandable if this plasticizer is phthalate free or not because of the chemical name. It is common in chemistry to use the term phthalates for substances which are actually ortho-phthalates

Terephthalates are not considered to be (ortho-)phthalates, like pineapples are not considered to be apples!
