Abstract: Brominated compounds are widely used as flame retardants in industrial operations. Due to their high efficiency, compatibility and small influence on mechanical properties, brominated flame retardants (BFRs) have a broad application area, mainly in the field of polymeric materials. Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) is the most important BFR, representing around 60 % of BFR total production. The estimated global consumption of TBBPA was around 170000 metric tons for 2004.
