The fate of BDE-153 (BDE = brominated diphenyl ethers) in different mangrove, fresh water pond, and marine subsurface sediments collected from Hong Kong SAR was investigated. Under anaerobic conditions, all sediments showed good intrinsic abilities to reductively debrominate BDE-153, producing debromination products ranging from hexa- to mono-BDEs in 90 days. The half-lives of BDE-153 in eight different sediments varied from 7.6 to 165 days, with higher debromination in mangrove than marine and… CONTINUE READING
