Abstract
The study has resulted in the detection and confirmation of polyhalogenated diphenylethers (PHDPEs) in human adipose tissues. The identifications are based on both full scan and selected ion monitoring (SIM) high resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) analysis efforts. The samples that were analyzed were selected from composites of the fiscal year 1987 (FY87) National Human Adipose Tissue Survey (NHATS) repository. The specific analysis effort to confirm the presence of the PHDPEs was conducted as a result of observations of response to these compounds during the analysis of the FY87 NHATS composites for polyhalogenated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans. The PHDPEs are of interest as a result of their planar aromatic structure and potential toxicological properties. The PHDPEs are commercially produced as brominated fire retardants and are known contaminants in other commercial products such as pentachlorophenol. The concentrations of the PHDPEs were estimated from the preliminary analysis for the polyhalogenated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans. The analysis efforts summarized in the report were conducted using available PHDPE standards.
