  1. 1. Environmental occurrence and fate of semifluorinated n-alkanes and perfluorinated alkyl acids present in ski waxes

    Författare :Merle M. Plassmann; Urs Berger; Michael McLachlan; Crispin Halsall; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Semifluorinated n-alkanes; Perfluorinated alkyl acids; ski waxes; snow; soil; fate; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Highly fluorinated organic compounds are emerging environmental contaminants of concern, due to their persistence, ubiquitous distribution, bioaccumulation potential and toxicity. Ski waxes are sources of highly fluorinated chemicals to the environment that have not been investigated so far. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Sources, transport and fate of perfluoroalkyl acids in the atmosphere

    Författare :Jana Johansson; Ian Cousins; Tom Harner; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Perfluorinated alkyl acids; PFOS; PFOA; Isomers; Sources; Atmospheric transport; Sea spray; Gas-particle partitioning; Volatilisation; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) are man-made chemicals which have been observed in the global environment, even in locations far away from where they are emitted. These persistent substances are taken up in humans and biota and may have toxic effects. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Enrichment of biogenic and anthropogenic organic substances on sea spray aerosols

    Författare :Nikola Radoman; Ian Cousins; Matthew Salter; Jurgita Ovadnevaite; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sea spray; Organic carbon; Dissolved organic matter; Phytoplankton bloom; Cationic surfactants; Perfluorinated alkyl acids; LC-MS; HRMS; Analytical Chemistry; analytisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : The world’s oceans are the source of one of the most abundant types of natural aerosols, namely sea spray aerosols (SSA). By scattering solar radiation, SSA play a significant role in controlling the Earth’s radiation budget, while they are also involved in the formation of clouds, acting as cloud condensation nuclei (CCN).

  4. 4. Analysis of Perfluoroalkyl Acids in Swedish Biota : Temporal trends, tissue distribution and toxicity

    Författare :Katrin Holmström; Urs Berger; Gregg Tomy; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Environmental chemistry; PFOS; PFAS; pollutant; Baltic guillemot; peregrine falcon; Monoporeia affinis; time trend; toxicity; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi; Persistent organic compounds; Persistenta organiska föreningar; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Perfluorinated alkyl acids (PFAS) are ubiquitous environmental contaminants. They are found in high concentrations in top predators worldwide, with perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) as the predominant compound. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Analysis and human levels of persistent perfluorinated chemicals

    Författare :Anna Kärrman; Gunilla Lindström; Bert van Bavel; Ulf Järnberg; Jessika Hagberg; Lennart Hardell; Derek Muir; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; PFOS; PFOA; SPE; LC-MS; human exposure; Chemistry; Kemi; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Sammanfattning : An extensive use of perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) in the last 50 years has resulted in a worldwide spread of these persistent chemicals. Human populations are subjected to a large number of PFCs in ways that are not yet fully explained. LÄS MER
