How would you describe your project in a few sentences? 

The goal of the project has been to produce brominated phenols (OH-PBDEs) and brominated catechols. We plan to use these substances to determine effect levels for OH-PBDEs in vivo and to study degradation of thiamine caused by catechols.

What are your most important results, and for whom are they particularly useful?

The substances have been synthesized, and are now available for further research.

How can it assist an ecosystem based management of the marine environment?

The project will increase the knowledge about the causes of the health problems affecting the Baltic Sea fauna, and based on that knowledge appropriate action can be taken.
