|Abstract:||PBDEs were analysed in a transect along the Danube River from Germany to the Black Sea. A zone of higher PBDE concentrations in water, sediment and SPM appeared in a stretch of about 1000 km downstream of Budapest, with a tendency of stronger releases from the right-hand side of the catchment along that section. Sediment and SPM were dominated by BDE- 209, which dominated also the congener pattern of the PBDE content in the whole water column. The dissolved phase water phase was instead dominated by BDE-47, BDE-99 and BDE 209, and among the BDEs of the cPenta-BDE mixture analysed in mussels, BDE-47 and BDE-99 were the dominant congeners.|
