Direct Analysis of 17 Perfluorinated Compounds in Water at Low Parts-Per-Trillion Levels by LC/MS/MS Workflow


Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) have received lots of attention recently due to their resistance to degradation in the environment. Reports of their occurrence in tap water, food or even human blood have led to concerns of their impact on the human body as pollutants. To better understand their effect on the environment it is critical to analyze PFASs in biological and environmental matrices.
