Research environments

Chlorinated paraffins (CPs) is a group of complex chemical mixture containing millions of theoretical homologues and isomers and are ubiquitous environment due to their large production volumes, widespread usage and environmental persistency. Most research on CPs have focused on the outdoor environment but there is limited research on their distribution and human exposure in the indoor environment. The aim of this project is to establish workflows to reliably quantify CPs in indoor matrices and investigate their indoor distribution and human exposure.
