CALL FOR PAPERS
Poly- and Per-Fluoroalkyl Substances: Where, What, When, Why, Who, and How
253rd American Chemical Society National Meeting & Exposition
“Advanced Materials, Technologies, Systems & Processes”
San Francisco, California
April 2-6, 2017
Abstract Deadline: October 31, 2016
Occurrence of poly- and per-fluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in the environment and biota has gained global attention because PFASs are persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic. Long-chain PFASs, particularly
perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS), have been intensively studied over the past few decades, while advances in analytical method development have identified legacy and new long-chain and short-chain PFASs in different natural and engineered environments.
This symposium will focus on recent advances in analytical methods for PFASs; environmental source, fate and transport of legacy and newly identified PFASs; toxicological effects on humans and wildlife; risk management, remediation technologies and strategies for PFASs.
The topics that would be covered in this session are, but are not limited to:
