The debromination pathways of seven polybrominated
diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) by three different cultures of anaerobic
dehalogenatingbacteriawereinvestigatedusingcomprehensive
two-dimensional gas chromatography (GC GC). The
congeners analyzed were the five major components of the
industrially used octa-BDE mixture (octa-BDEs 196, 203, and 197,
hepta-BDE 183, and hexa-BDE 153) as well as the two most
