Halogen-containing aromatics, mainly bromine-containing phenols, are harmful compounds contaminating pyrolysis oil from electronic boards containing halogenated flame retardants. In addition,theirformation increases the potential for evolution of polybrominated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PBDDs) and dibenzofurans (PBDFs) at relatively low temperature (up to 500 degrees...

A bromophenol, bis(2,3-dibromo-4,5-dihydroxybenzyl) ether, was purified from the red alga Polyopes lancifolia. Its IC(50) values were 0.098 and 0.120 microM against Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Bacillus stearothermophilus alpha-glucosidases, respectively, and 1.00 and 1.20 mM against rat-intestinal sucrase and maltase. This bromophenol...

Hydroxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers (HO-PBDEs) have received significant attention due to their toxicities and universal presence in the environmental matrices. However, their origins are not fully understood. We explored the feasibility of the generation of HO-PBDEs through photochemical processes from...

Halophenols such as 2,4-dibromophenol (DBP) occur naturally in some marine sediments, as a consequence of various animal and algal activities. In an earlier study, DBP was observed in the burrow microenvironment of the hemichordate Saccoglossus kowalewskii. At the concentrations found...
