Nontarget Identification of Novel Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances in Cord Blood Samples.

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) can penetrate the placental barrier and reach embryos through cord blood, probably causing adverse birth outcomes. Therefore, novel PFASs identification in

Strategies for the Biodegradation of Polyfluorinated Compounds

It is posited here that considering their individual chemical classes is more useful for both chemical and microbiological considerations of their fate.

Assessing the Persistence and Mobility of Organic Substances to Protect Freshwater Resources

Persistent and mobile organic substances are those with the highest propensity to be widely distributed in groundwater and thereby, when emitted at low-levels, to contaminate drinking water

Outside the Safe Operating Space of a New Planetary Boundary for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)

It is hypothesized that environmental contamination by per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) defines a separate planetary boundary and that this boundary has been exceeded. This hypothesis is

FindPFΔS: Non-Target Screening for PFAS─Comprehensive Data Mining for MS2 Fragment Mass Differences.

The limited availability of analytical reference standards makes non-target screening approaches based on high-resolution mass spectrometry increasingly important for the efficient identification of

Hollow Covalent Organic Framework with “Shell‐Confined” Environment for the Effective Removal of Anionic Per‐ and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances

The ubiquity of per‐ and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) has become an emerging challenge for modern water treatment and public health. The development of high‐performance adsorbents remains at the

Extraction of Chemical Structures from Literature and Patent Documents using Open Access Chemistry Toolkits: A Case Study with PFAS

The extraction of chemical information from documents is a demanding task in cheminformatics due to the variety of text and image-based representations of chemistry. The present work describes the


Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances in the Environment: Terminology, Classification, and Origins

Those PFASs that have the potential to be converted into long-chain perfluoroalkyl carboxylic or sulfonic acids are paid particular attention, which are currently the focus of regulatory action.
