- ... Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) is one of the most widely used brominated flame retardants and is frequently detected in environmental and biological samples. While numerous studies have been conducted on the health effects and toxicokinetics upon oral exposure, few have explored other exposure routes. In the present study, TBBPA was administered to female Wistar rats for 90 days by repeated dermal ...

- ... The two most widely used brominated flame retardants (BFRs), decabromodiphenyl ether (BDE209) and tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA), co-exist prevalently with heavy metals (HM), at e-waste recycling sites (EWRSs). The laboratory incubation we conducted, which 50 g of dried soil spiked with Pb, Cd, BDE209 and TBBPA, were incubated 180 d in the dark at 25 °C, and kept the soil moisture at 60%. The resul ...
