What You Should Know About Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) for Environmental Claims

Lydia R. Dorrance, Ph.D. and Adam Love, Ph.D. 

Roux’s Lydia Dorrance, Ph.D., Senior Scientist and Adam Love, Ph.D., Vice President coauthored an article published in the Environmental Claims Journal regarding the latest developments on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). PFAS are a broad class of surfactant-like chemicals that are characterized by their many carbon-fluorine bonds.

Since the 1950s, PFAS have been widely used in numerous and varied products with industrial and commercial applications. However, concerns regarding potentially adverse human health and ecological impacts from exposure to PFAS chemicals have resulted in increased regulatory attention and lawsuits alleging bodily injury and/or property damage.

This article outlines what you should know about PFAS for environmental claims, including PFAS characteristics and uses, sampling and analysis, forensics, and more. Please click on the button below to request a complimentary copy.
