Short summary
Gas/particle partitioning for polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in global air was investigated and an equation to predict the partition coefficients under steady state was developed, indicating that equilibrium is a special case of steady state when the non-equilibrium factor can be ignored. The results of the equation matched the worldwide monitoring data well, showing its superiority to the equilibrium-state-based equation that has been used in recent decades.
