Fish and turtle (5 from Arkansas and 3 from Louisiana) caught downstream of the brominated organic chemical industry near El Dorado, AR were extracted, cleaned up, and analyzed by GC/MS for brominated organics using full scan and single ion monitoring electron impact GC/MS and negative ion chemical ionization GC/MS. PBBs (C12H4Br6 and C12H3Br7) were identified in one sample and several other brominated compounds were tentatively identified in several samples. Due to the high levels of interferences and very low levels of the compounds of interest, further identifications were impossible. The compounds were not quantitated, but levels appear to be much less than 1 ppm.
