A gas chromatographic relative retention time (GC-RRT) model was developed to predict retention times of the 209 individual polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) congeners. Using the available 46 PBDE standards with mono- to deca-bromination, a multiple linear regression equation of the form RRT = b0 +b1 (no. o-Br) + b2(no. m-Br) +b3 (no. p-Br) +b4(mu) +b5 (ln MW) was used to predict the RRTs of the remaining 163 PBDE congeners. Molecular descriptors in the model included the number of ortho… CONTINUE READING
