Surprise discovery as research shows trihalogenated anilines make synthetic chemicals
Trihalogenated anilines are synthetic chemicals made from chemicals found in crude oil and used as flame retardants. However, their toxic effects cause concern. Now research has shown that these chemicals are also made by algae. They live in a balanced microbial community, so scientists now hope to identify the compound that degrades the toxic compounds.
