Structure elucidation of hexabromocyclododecanes--a class of compounds with a complex stereochemistry.

Abstract

Hexabromocyclododecanes (HBCDs) are high production volume chemicals (16700 t worldwide in 2001) used as flame-retardants for plastics and textiles. HBCDs exhibit typical properties of persistent organic pollutants (POPs). They are highly lipophilic and accumulate in biota. Increasing environmental concentrations of HBCDs, mostly reported as sum values… (More)
