HBCD: Investigation of the aerobic transformation of the three major diastereomers (α, β, γ) of Hexabromocyclododecane in soils. Report no.: 081105. Report date: 2010-04-12.
In studies conducted to OECD Guidelines 307 and 308 (aerobic and
anaerobic transformation in soil and sediment respectively), HBCDD was
tested at concentrations ranging from approximately 10 to 80 ng/g dry
weight (Davis et al., 2005 Water Research; 2003). Using LC-MS, HBCDD was
observed in all with faster rates under anaerobic conditions.
Biologically mediated transformation accelerated the rate loss of all
HBCDD compared to biologically inhibited (i.e. autoclaved) soils and
sediments.Biotransformation half-lives were 63 and 6.9 days in the
aerobic and anaerobic soils respectively and 11 to 32 days and 1.1 to
1.5 days in aerobic and anaerobic sediments. Brominated degradation
products were not detected in any of the soils or sediments during the
In a further investigation with 14C-HBCDD, the formation and
identification of degradants were assessed in activated digester sludge,
river sediment and surface soil under aerobic and anaerobic conditions
at concentrations of 3 -5 mg/kg to generate sufficient products for
identification (Davis et al., 2004). HPLC with radiochemical detection,
HPLC-APPI-MS and GC-ELMS were utilised. Substantial biological
transformation was observed in the anaerobic digester sludge and in
aerobic and anaerobic freshwater sediment. No degradation was noted in
aerobic soil. In sludge and sediment, degradation of each of the three
diastereomers occurred with little difference in rates. Formation of the
following three products was observed in the sludge and sediments:
tetrabromocyclododecane, dibromocycloedodecandiene and cyclodecatriene.
The primary degradation and mineralisation of the three major HBCDD
diastereomers (alpha, beta and gamma) was further characterised in two
aerobic soils (Davis et al., 2010). Soil microcosms (25-85 ng/g) were
prepared and incubated for up to 221 days, extracted and analysed at
intervals using HPLC-ESI with MS operating in the MRM mode. The
concentrations of the three diastereomers decreased in both soil types
in both the viable and biologically inhibited microcosms. Each
diastereomer behaved differently in the two solid and degradation was a
function of the specific diastereomer and soil type. The half-lives of
alpha, beta and gamma in the sandy clay loam viable soil microcosms were
441, 64 and 126 days respectively while in the viable loamy soil,
half-lives were 162, 147 and 201 days respectively. Loss of all three
was also observed in the biologically inhibited microcosms, however,
greater biological loss was noted for all the beta and gamma
diastereomers. Loss in the inhibited microcosms could be attributed to
biodegradation resulting from slow recovery and growth of the microbial
populations. Mineralisation to CO2 was
observed in the aerobic soils (27%-16% after 218 days). 5-10% of the
14C-activity could not be extracted from the soils ands was 6-fold
higher in the viable soils demonstrating the importance of the
biological processes in transformation of HBCDD in aerobic soils.
Thus, biodegradation of HBCDD in anaerobic soils is rapid with a
half-life of approximately 7 days. Slower biodegradation was observed in
aerobic soils with an overall half-life of 63 days for HBCDD and
half-lives of 162 or 441, 64 or 147 and 126 or 201 days for the alpha,
beta and gamma diastereomers, respectively, depending on soil type.
