Li’s paper on modelling human exposure to PBDEs accepted in ES&T

December 1, 2019

In a study modelling aggregate human exposure to brominatedĀ flame retardantsĀ via both near- and far-field pathways, we managed to find a plausible explanation for faster declining levels in infants compared to adults. Indoor emissions and therefore near-field exposures decline faster than outdoor emissions and the resulting food contamination.

Modelling aggregate exposure to hypothetical chemical property combinations

September 9, 2019

Even if a chemical is only used indoors, the outdoor environment (food!) may still contribute more to human exposure. Read more in Li’s most recent paper in ES&T.
