Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs)
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are a type of flame retardant. Flame retardants are chemicals that slow the spread of fire, reduce costly damage caused by fire and save lives.
There are 3 main types of PBDEs: PentaBDE, OctaBDE and DecaBDE.
I’m extremely grateful to the Canadian Cancer Society for funding my research with an Innovation Grant.
