    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Worada Boonraksasat; [2019]
    Keywords : Groundwater modelling; contaminant transport; Visual MODFLOW; MODPATH; MT3DMS; PFASs; AFFFs;

    Abstract : Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are a group of man-made organic chemicals that have been commercially used since the 1950s in many consumer products, including impregnated textiles, impregnated paper, nonstick products (e.g., Teflon), cleaning agents, and in firefighting foams.

  2. 2. The study of organofluorine analysis applied to totaloxidizable precursor (TOP) assay to understand perandpolyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs)

    University essay from Örebro universitet/Institutionen för naturvetenskap och teknik

    Author : Crystal Ho; [2018]
    Keywords : Poly- per-fluoroalkyl substances; total oxidizable precursor TOP assay; AFFFs; combustion ion chromatography; oxidation;

    Abstract : Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are synthetic chemicals which are used in a wide range of applications such as aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) for firefighting, paint, coating and cosmetics. For almost a decade, PFASs have received worldwide attention because of the ubiquitous detection of PFAS in the environment and their bioaccumulative, persistent and give toxic effects on animals and humans.

    Abstract : Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are a diverse group of persistent organic pollutants. PFASs have a wide area of applications such as stain repellent for paper, textile, furniture and industrial products such as aqueous film forming foams (AFFFs) used for firefighting. READ MORE

  4. 4. Microbial binding of per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFASs) : - Analysis of PFASs in microbes with ultra-performance liquid chromatography – tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS)

    University essay from Örebro universitet/Institutionen för naturvetenskap och teknik

    Author : Karolina Majdak; [2018]
    Keywords : PFASs; microbes; microbial binding; PFOS; PFHxS; AFFFs.;

    Abstract : Per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFASs) belong to a large group of man-made chemicals that pollute the environment. Perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) are the most commonly found PFASs. The pollution of PFASs can be caused among others by using of aqueous fire-fighting foams (AFFFs). READ MORE

  5. 5. PFAS in recipient sediment of a military airport

    University essay from Örebro universitet/Institutionen för naturvetenskap och teknik

    Author : Lovisa Johansson Blomér; [2017]
    Keywords : Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances; PFAS; PFOS; Sediment; Military airport; Per- och polyfluorerade alkylsubstanser; PFAS; PFOS; sediment; militär flygplats;

    Abstract : Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, PFASs, are highly fluorinated substances where the carbon chain is fully- or partly fluorinated. A functional group is coupled at the end of the carbon chain which gives PFASs their different properties. READ MORE
