Why dosen't an acid base reaction occur for BDE-47

Hello

I am not sure why BDE-47 would undergo an acid-base reaction in water. Although I do know that OH-BDE 47 does undergo acid-base reactions. I am under the assumption that BDE-47 doesn't undergo this type of reaction due to the stability of the carbon rings. That breaking the Bromine bonds would require to much energy. Although I thought that maybe the Oxygen bond could have be cleaved and then protonated. The structure is below through the link. The chemical is slightly soluble in water, but attaches to particulates in the water so could that be one of the reasons.
