Degradation studies of new substitutes for perfluorinated surfactants.
perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) are man-made, perfluorosurfactants stable. The properties of perfluoroalkylated compounds that cause them to persist in the environment are also properties that make them attractive compounds for industrial use for more than 50 years. Because of the unique properties of carbon-fluorine bond and polarity perfluoroalkyl group, a potential successor to replace perfluorinated surfactants in many cases continue to perfluoroalkyl-based.
