Water as a new matrix for global assessment of hydrophilic POPs

  title={Water as a new matrix for global assessment of hydrophilic POPs},
  author={Derek C G Muir and Rainer Lohmann},
With the addition of perfluorooctanesulfonate (PFOS), chlordecone, hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) isomers and endosulfan to the Stockholm Convention, the chemicals addressed no longer comprise solely hydrophobic organics. Water has become a widely-used environmental matrix for monitoring persistent organic pollutants (POPs), particularly for the chlorinated pesticides, despite challenges related to collecting samples and determining trace levels. We review sampling and analytical considerations… CONTINUE READING
