Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are among the most important and widely used flame retardants. Recent legislation banned certain PBDE congeners.? EU directive 2003/11/EC prohibits the use of Penta-BDE and Octa-BDE for the member states of the European community.? Therefore, analysis of PBDEs have received increased interest as a result of their known toxicity.
