Polybrominated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PBDDs) are known to be formed as byproducts in connection with the manufacture and combustion of products containing brominated flame retardants. However, to date little is known about the occurrence of PBDDs in biological samples. The aim of the present investigation was to examine the presence of PBDDs in blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) from the Baltic Sea employing a procedure adapted for dioxin analysis. Two triBDDs (1,3,7-triBDD and 1,3,8-triBDD) were… CONTINUE READING

This identification was based on accurate mass determination and comparison of retention times on three gas chromatographic columns of different polarities ( PTE 5 , SP-2331 , and OV1701/heptakis ) with synthesized standards , together with comparisons of electron capture negative ionization ( ECNI ) and electron ionization ( EI ) mass spectra .
