The anthroposphere (sometimes also referred as technosphere) is that part of the environment that is made or modified by humans for use in human activities and human habitats.
Brominated flame retardants (BFRs) are organobromine compounds that have an inhibitory effect on combustion chemistry and tend to reduce the flammability of products containing them.
Bromine is a chemical element with symbol Br and atomic number 35.
Carbon (from carbo "coal") is a chemical element with symbol C and atomic number 6.
Diastereomers (sometimes called diastereoisomers) are a type of a stereoisomer.
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is an agency of the European Union which manages the technical, scientific and administrative aspects of the implementation of the European Union regulation called Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH).
Half-life (symbol t1⁄2) is the time required for a quantity to reduce to half its initial value.
Hydrogen is a chemical element with symbol H and atomic number 1.
Hydroxylation is a chemical process that introduces a hydroxyl group (-OH) into an organic compound.
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are organic compounds that are resistant to environmental degradation through chemical, biological, and photolytic processes.
Polystyrene (PS) is a synthetic aromatic hydrocarbon polymer made from the monomer styrene.
Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is a European Union regulation dating from 18 December 2006.
Risk is the potential of gaining or losing something of value.
A substance of very high concern (SVHC) is a chemical substance (or part of a group of chemical substances) for which it has been proposed that the use within the European Union be subject to authorisation under the REACH Regulation.
Toxicokinetics (often abbreviated as 'TK') is the description of both what rate a chemical will enter the body and what occurs to excrete and metabolize the compound once it is in the body.
The Environmental Protection Agency is an independent agency of the United States federal government for environmental protection.
