||Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (Naturvňrdsverket), Blekholmsterrassen 36, 10648 Stockholm, Sweden, 2000. 94p. Illus. Approx. 180 ref.
||Brominated flame retardants are used in electronic appliances and textiles. They are detected in the environment and in breast milk in increasing concentrations. Their persistence is a matter of concern and poses a potential problem similar to that of polychlorinated biphenlys (PCBs). This report discusses these issues and future trends. Contents: characteristics of flame retardants; brominated flame retardant chemistry; analytical methods for brominated flame retardants; toxicology; environmental concentrations; future trends.
