Abstract: Hydroxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers (OH-PBDEs) have obtained increasing attention; however, few analytical methods are available for sensitive identification of these compounds in water. In this paper, we developed a highly sensitive method for simultaneous determination of nine OH-PBDEs in water by using hydrophilic-lipophilic balanced cartridge extraction, silica cartridge purification, and the combination of derivatization with liquid chromatography-electrospray tandem mass spectrometry. The effecti…
