卤代阻燃剂(Halogenated Flame Retardants, HFRs)是一类用于降低聚合物易燃性的功能性助剂,广泛存在于室内环境中,对人体健康有严重的负面影响。多溴联苯醚、多氯联苯、得克隆是三种典型的卤代阻燃剂(HFRs),本文介绍了室内这三类HFRs的来源、采样方法与分析技术,并结合国内外的研究报告简要总结室内环境中这三类HFRs的污染特征及污染水平。利用暴露模型分析这三类污染物的人体暴露

Halogenated Flame Retardants (HFRs) used to reduce the polymer flammability are a kind of widespread typical pollutants in the indoor environment medium. They have a severe negative impact on human health. Polybrominated Biphenyl Ethers (PBDEs), Polychorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) and Dechlorane Plus (DP) are three kinds of the important Halogenated Flame Retardants. The present paper reviews the source, sampling, quantification, the pollution characteristics, pollution levels and human exposure of these HFRs in indoor environment.
