We focused on four low-cost biocides as one component, three of which are already employed in wood preservation (Nicholas and Schultz 1995) [boric acid/borates; the quat didecyldimethylammonium chloride (DDAC); and Cu(II)], and one low-cost organic that had been previously examined as a possible preservative and once apparently sold in South America, tribromophenol (TBP).

These samples include several novel, sulfidogenic pure cultures which degrade alkanes, toluene, and tribromophenol.
Tribromophenol (1 mL of 1000 [micro]g/mL) was added to each sample as an internal standard.

The taint was determined to be 2,4,6 tribromoanisole (TBA), produced by the conversion of its precursor 2,4,6 tribromophenol (TBP) which is used in some countries in products ranging from packaging materials to textiles to paints as a fire retardant and a fungicide.
The company also has introduced a briquette form of tribromophenol, PH73-FF, which has much improved flow and anti-caking tendencies over standard tribromophenol.
