Due to their unparalleled effectiveness and efficiency, polyfluorinated chemicals (PFC) have become essential in numerous technical applications. However, many PFCs brought to market show limited biodegradability, and their environmental persistence combined with toxic and bioaccumulative potential have become a matter of concern in some instances. This volume highlights the synthesis of PFCs, focusing on substances with improved application and environmental properties, which are a challenge for synthetic chemists. Further, modern mass spectrometric techniques for the detection and identification of biotransformation products of PFCs are described. The sorption and leaching behavior of PFC in soil is also addressed in order to predict their fate in the environment. Several contributions discuss the monitoring of PFCs in European surface, ground and drinking waters, treatment options for PFC removal from drinking water, occurrence in food, and the human biomonitoring of PFCs.

  • Analysis and Fate of Surfactants in the Aquatic Environment

    Thomas P Knepper, Pim De Voogt, Damia Barcelo

    An understanding of the fate and behaviour of organic chemicals, such as surfactants, in the environment is a prerequisite for the sustainable development of human health and ecosystems. As surfactants are being produced in huge amounts, it is imp...

  • The Rhine

    Thomas P Knepper

    The Rhine, in many ways the most important river in Europe has undergone not only tremendous contamination but also recreation. This book clearly demonstrates that the Rhine is by far the best investigated water body worldwide. Many well known sci...

From the reviews: This recent monograph (2012) contains very-up-to-date and broad information on PFC production, uses, properties, detection and exposure. The information and literature review provided in this book is of significant value for researchers who want to learn more about recent PFC research achievements. This small book (172 p.) is clearly written and comprehensive, with a good balance between the different aspects dealing with PFCs. Environmental chemists, environmental toxicologists and epidemiologists would benefit from this valuable source of both methodological and monitoring information.
