Analysis of Perfluoroalkyl Acids in Wastewater, Sludge, and Liver Extracts Using High-Resolution, Accurate Mass LC-MS
DescriptionPerfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) are global pollutants and have been shown to bioaccumulate in the food chain. PFAAs have been detected in livers of fish, birds, and marine mammals from Greenland and the Faroe Islands.1 Biomagnification of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), the predominant fluorochemical detected, was observed along the marine food chain (Figure 1). We demonstrate the performance of the Exactive highresolution, accurate mass benchtop liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) system in the analysis of ten selected perfluoroalkyl acids.
