Decabromodiphenyl Ethane is a chemical compound that belongs to the group of brominated flame retardants (BFRs). It is a brominated organic compound derived from diphenyl ethane. DBDPE is a white powder with the chemical formula C14H4Br10. This is primarily used as a flame retardant additive in various materials and products to enhance their fire resistance properties. It is commonly employed in plastics, foam products, textiles, electronic devices, and other applications where fire safety is a concern. Decabromodiphenyl Ethane works by reducing the flammability of these materials and can help prevent or slow down the spread of fire.
