This study was investigated occurrence and distribution patterns of organophosphorus flame retardants (OPFRs) in Nakdong River basin (mainstream, tributaries and sewage treatment plant (STP) effluents). 3 (TCEP, TCPP and TBEP) out of 9 OPFRs were detected in 6 out of 20 sampling sites (mainstream and tributaries), The TCPP and TBEP concentration levels in mainstream samples were ND~114.9 ng/L ng/L and ND~49.1 ng/L, respectively. And the TCEP, TCPP and TBEP concentration levels in tributary samples were ND~1,865.3 ng/L, ND~519.2 ng/L and ND~210.4 ng/L, respectively. 4 (TBP, TCEP, TCPP and TBEP) out of 9 OPFRs were detected in effluents of 11 STPs around the Nakdong River basin. The TBP, TCEP, TCPP and TBEP concentration levels in 11 STP effluents were ND~458.5 ng/L, ND~2,932.7 ng/L, ND~1,320.7 ng/L and ND~655.2 ng/L, respectively. According to the sampling season, change ranges of distribution patterns and detected concentrations of OPFRs were highly variable in the same sampling sites.
