Formation of 2'-hydroxy-2,3',4,5'-tetrabromodipheyl ether (2'-HO-BDE68) from 2,4-dibromophenol in aqueous solution under simulated sunlight irradiation.

Abstract

Hydroxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers (HO-PBDEs) have received significant attention due to their toxicities and universal presence in the environmental matrices. However, their origins are not fully understood. We explored the feasibility of the generation of HO-PBDEs through photochemical processes from bromophenol, a commonly detected pollutant… (More)
