Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are flame retardants used in a myriad of applications and are monitored worldwide because of health concerns. In this application, PBDE congeners were extracted from two sediment samples (certified sample and sediment core from Lake Maggiore) according to EPA method 3545A using the SpeedExtractor E-914 and determined by GC-MS/GC-ECD. The results were comparable to the certified values and showed high reproducibility and recovery. The data show that this procedure is perfectly suitable for the extraction of PBDEs in sediment samples.
