Impact/Purpose:

To be presented at the Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI) Conference

Description:

Legacy perfluorinated compounds exhibit significant environmental persistence and bioaccumulation potential, which has spawned an ongoing effort to introduce replacement compounds with reduced toxicological risk profiles. Many of these emerging chemical species lack validated quantitative methods, and frequently appropriate analytical standards for accurate monitoring and identification. To fill this knowledge gap, a general method for the quantitative determination of perfluoroether carboxylic acids (PFECAs) by LC-MS/MS was validated on spike-recovery samples in surface, drinking, and wastewater for a variety of perfluorinated ether standards.
