ABSTRACT
Polybrominated organic compounds are ubiquitous throughout the environment. This generic term comprises several classes of brominated flame retardants (e.g., polybrominated diphenyl ethers, polybrominated biphenyls, hexabromocyclododecane, dibromopropyltribromophenyl ether, 1,2-bis(2,4,6-tribromophenoxy)ethane) as well as a range of marine halogenated natural products (HNPs). Here we present gas chromatography retention times and elution orders (on DB-5) of 122 polybrominated compounds that may be found in food and environmental samples. Organobromine compounds in fish samples determined with gas chromatography interfaced to electron-capture negative ion mass spectrometry (GC/ECNI-MS) are discussed. The environmental relevance and important mass spectrometric features of the compounds are described as well. Our database aims to support the closer inspection and identification of peaks in gas chromatograms and to initiate dedicated screening for less frequently studied organobromines in samples.
