  1. 1. Improved analytical methods for perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) and their precursors – a focus on human dietary exposure

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Shahid Ullah; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Environmental Science; PFASs; PFAAs; PFOA; PFOS; Precursor; FOSA; PAPs; Method development; LC-MS; SPE; Dietary sample; Drinking water; Human exposure; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances are a large group of global environmental contaminants. They can be divided into two sub-groups, 1) perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) and 2) so called precursors, i.e. compounds that can potentially be transformed to form PFAAs. READ MORE

  2. 2. Tissue distribution studies and risk assessment of perfluoroalkylated and polyfluoroalkylated substances (pfass)

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Institute of Environmental Medicine

    Author : Daniel Borg; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Perfluoroalkylated and polyfluoroal kylated substances (PFASs) represent a large class of man - made chemicals. These substances have emerged as environmental contaminants due to their extraordinary resistance to degradation, potential for bioaccumulation, toxicity and a global presence in hum ans, wildlife and the environment.

  4. 4. Assessing the longitudinal trend of POP concentrations in humans using high-throughput sample preparation methods developed for low-volume samples

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Jordan Stubleski; Örebro universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Longitudinal trends; human biomonitoring; POPs; PFASs; high-throughput solid phase extraction; high-resolution mass spectrometry; tandem mass spectrometry;

    Abstract : Human exposure to anthropogenic persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and their related effects on human health widely vary from person to person, making population-based risk assessment difficult.This thesis aimed to evaluate how individual changes and implemented re-strictions in POP production influenced human exposure.

  5. 5. Estimating children’s exposure to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry (ACES), Stockholm University

    Author : Kerstin Winkens; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
