Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are a worldwide contamination problem. Structurally similar to PCBs, these compounds are long-lived in the environment and can bio-accumulate throughout the food chain. The health hazards of these chemicals have attracted increasing scrutiny and, as such, a great deal of research and regulations have been implemented to manage and control them.

Dioxins are of great environmental concern due to their teratogenic, mutagenic, and carcinogenic impact. These lipophilic compounds bioaccumulate in humans and wildlife and can have half lives of up to 132 years, making them persistent organic pollutants (POPs). Traditional SPE requires a filtration step to remove particulates when using SPE cartridges, because of clogging issues.
