A widely recognized laboratory for dibenzodioxins
and dibenzofurans made chemical analyses.
Note: FT4, free thyroxine; PCB, polychlorinated biphenyl; PCDD, polychlorinated dibenzodioxin
; PCDF, polychlorinated dibenzofuran; TBG, thyroxine binding globulin; TEQ, toxic equivalent; TSH, thyroid stimulating hormone; TT3, total triiodothyronine; TT4, total thyroxine.
1.25 (0.54-2.90) Exposure evaluated for phenoxy herbicides and chlorophenols, polychlorinated dibenzodioxins
and 0.88 (0.36-2.18) furans, raw materials, process chemicals, and chemicals used in the production of phenoxy herbicides.
Contaminants: Chloropropanols; Polychlorinated dibenzodioxins
, polychlorinated dibenzofurans and coplanar polychlorinated biphenyls.
The analysis indicated that emissions of key environmental pollutants (such as dibenzodioxins
and polyaromatic hydrocarbons) were lower for the TV cabinet containing DecaBDE and antimony trioxide than for a non-flame-retarded HB cabinet.
Toxic substances used by the wood-preservation industry include inorganic arsenic, chromium VI, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), and the following micro-contaminants of pentachlorophenol: hexchorobenzene (HCB), polychlorinated dibenzodioxins
(PCDDs), and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs).
Halogenated biphenyls, terphenyls, naphthalenes, dibenzodioxins
and related products.
It reportedly does not produce detectable levels of polybrominated dibenzodioxins
or dibenzofurans by itself or when compounded into HIPS resin.
This noxious mixture spewed out by incinerators includes about 200 compounds known as polychlorinated dibenzodioxins
and polychlorinated dibenzofurans, many of which are toxic and some of which are potentially cancer-causing.
Levels of polychlorinated dibenzodioxins
and dibenzofurans in cow's milk and in soy bean derived infant formulas sold in the United States and other countries.
Other analytes included cotinine, polychlorinated biphenyls, phthalate metabolites, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, polychlorinated dibenzodioxins
, polychlorinated dibenzofurans, bisphenol A, triclosan, selenium, uranium, perfluorinated compounds, parabens, benzophenone, manganese, and antimony.
Saytex 8010 is an alternative to Saytex 102E (decabromodiphenyloxide), which has come under environmental pressure for generating dibenzodioxins
