MetadataShow full item record
More than 10000 chemicals are known to be used as additives in plastics (1). Known PBT characteristics, production volumes and empirical data were sued to evaluate their potential for nomination to the Stockholm Convention. A 5-Tiered approach was used to identify 9 chemicals for further investigation. Additional Chemicals of Interest are also suggested for further follow up with respect to similar usages (UV-compounds) or suggested P&B properties (Liquid crystal monomers).
