Application of High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry to Environmental Analysis of Poly- and Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs)
Recent work using high-resolution mass spectrometry has shown that there might be hundreds of new poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) associated with aqueous film-forming foams (AFFFs). As researchers investigate them, they see diverse chemical structures, including anionic, cationic, and zwitterionic moieties. The variety of the PFAS makes analytical testing complex.
