UNLABELLED Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are considered harmful to human health because of their toxicities and persistence in environments. In the current study, the distribution and fate of PBDEs in classrooms and computer rooms in 17 elementary schools in South Korea have been described. Eight congeners (brominated diphenyl ether-28, -47, -99, -100, -153, -154, -183, and -209) in air, floor dust, and product surface dust were measured. While Sigma(8)PBDEs in the air in classrooms… CONTINUE READING
