We introduce a congener-specific numbering system for the C4 through C8 perfluorinated homologue groups of alkyl sulfonates, carboxylates, telomer alcohols, olefins, and acids, and their derivatives. Increasing length of the carbon chain beyond C3 leads to a corresponding rapid increase in the number of potential isomers (C4 = 4, C5 = 8, C6 = 17, C7 = 39, and C8 = 89 congeners). There is a need for clear and unambiguous chemical shorthand to ensure accuracy and consistency in the future… Expand
