A State-of-the-Industry Report

The backbone of a PFAS chemical is a chain of carbon atoms, which may be fully (per) or partly (poly) fluorinated. In this white paper, you'll learn about commonly detected perfluorinated alkyl acids such as:

  • Perfluorocarboxylic acids (PFCA) - Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is the most commonly detected.
  • Perfluoroalkane sulfonates (PFSA) - Perfluorohexane sulfonate (PFHxS) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) are the most frequently detected.
