Abstract: This article reviews the available literature on the analytical and environmental aspects of tetrabromobisphenol-A (TBBP-A), a currently intensively used brominated flame retardant (BFR). Analytical methods. Liquid chromatographic combined with mass-spectrometry is a well-established and reliable technology in the identification and quantification of TBBP-A. Environmental levels of TBBP-A are low, probably due to the major use of TBBP-A as reactive FR. As a consequence, of this the expected human exposure is minimal. this is in agreement with the EU risk assessment that concluded that there is no risk for humans concerning TBBP-A exposure. Very few measurements are available though for Asia, where TBBP-A is massively used, and this is a major data.
