Zongrui Li, PhD student in Guangzhou Institute of Geochemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (visiting student at QAEHS). His PhD thesis is about fate and behavior of typical halogenated flame retardant in chicken maternal transfer and embryo development.

Since the phase-out and regulations of some major brominated flame retardants, alternatives such as OPEs are being increasingly produced and consumed. Although ubiquitously detected in various environmental matrices, OPEs were generally detected at relatively low levels in biota samples due to the short half-lives in organisms, and researchers are now devoting to the metabolites of OPEs. In this talk, he will describe some recent studies on occurrence and partition of OPEs and mOPEs in chicken eggs from across Australia.
