Brominated Flame Retardants

Halogen flame retardant works in a gas phase and reacts with the radicals formed during the combustion. Chlorine and bromine are the only halogens used as FRs in synthetic plastic formulations since fluorine and iodine are unsuitable for this application. Brominated flame retardants (BFRs) are by far the most widely used FRs as they are more effective, cost less and have wider application. However, BFRs have been targeted as an environmental hazard by persistence and bio-accumulation, when heated they can also form toxic by-products including CO and smoke.
