Detection of perfluorocarboxylate anions (PFCAs), such as perfluorooctanoate (C7F15COO-, PFOA), at ng/g levels in human tissues has engendered public scrutiny of industrial fluorochemicals. Routes of PFCA exposure for the general human population are likely diverse given direct (industrially produced) and indirect (production from precursor organofluorines) sources. Major industrial production of organofluorines, including PFCAs, stems from either electrochemical fluorination (ECF) or… CONTINUE READING
