Brominated Flame Retardants in Marine Mammals
SpeedExtractor E-916, Syncore® Analyst R-12: Extraction of Alternative Brominated Flame Retardants from Harbour Porpoises (Phocoena phocoena)
In recent years, the most widely used brominated flame retardants (BFRs), have been substituted with other, non-PBDE, BFRs. In this short note, a method for the analysis of aBFRs in biota samples is described. The method utilises pressurized solvent extraction with SpeedExtractor E-916 and concentration using a Syncore®, followed by a clean-up and analytics by GC-MS/MS. The recoveries of the aBFR in spiked samples were mostly between 70-120%. The monitored concentrations in marine mammals are generally low.
