AGROLAB has extended the comprehensive range of single substance analysis of PFAS/PFC by the sum parameter AOF (adsorbable organic fluorine). This parameter can be investigated in wastewater, ground and surface water as well as in solid eluates.

 

WHAT ARE PFAS??

PFAS consist of a per- (fully) or poly- (partially) fluorinated carbon chain (alkyl substance). They have been used since the 1950‘s for their long-lasting water and oil repellent properties. There are both short-chain and long-chain PFAS, the best known long-chain representatives being PFOA (a perfluoro carboxylic acid) and PFOS (a perfluoro sulfonic acid).

 

SUM PARAMETERS AOF

As there are more than 4000 known individual substances, a single-substance analysis is not always effective, as not all components can be detected by single-substance chromatography. This also applies in particular to the fluorinated precursors and metabolites (degradation products). By measuring the sum parameter AOF the total adsorbable organic fluorine from aqueous media is determined, thus offering the possibility to complete the single-substance determination.
