Persistent organic pollutants (POPs), such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), are ubiquitous environmental contaminants that have been targeted by national regulations since the 1970-1980s, followed in 2004 by the worldwide regulation under the Stockholm Convention on POPs. However, concerns are growing regarding the emergence of additional POP-like substances, such as chlorinated paraffins (CPs), which have particularly large production volumes. Whereas short-chain CPs (SCCPs) have recently… CONTINUE READING
