DECABROMODIPHENYL OXIDE

This test method uses HPLC and UV Detection to monitor Decabromodiphenyl oxide (DBDPO). Decabromodiphenyl oxide is released by different processes into the environment, such as emissions from manufacture of DBDPO -containing products and from the products themselves. Elevated concentrations can be found in air, water, soil, food, sediment, sludge, and dust This method was developed to analyze DBDPO in an air sample. Decabromodiphenyl Oxide is a cancer suspect agent and irritant. Methanol is a flammable liquid, toxic. DMSO is an irritant, wear protective clothing as it can penetrate the skin.

Analysis Type (Application Method): HPLC-UV
