Research environments

The project aims at measuring total organic fluorine (TOF) and new PFAS compounds that have rarely been monitored in environmental samples from the Nordic countries. TOF will make it possible to detect the total amount of organic fluorine indicating the missing information that can not be obtained by conventional targeted analysis. The results will contribute to discussions on the regulation of PFAS chemicals in the Stockholm convention, REACH, AMAP, and national legislation.
