PFOS is an extremely stable compound with strong carbon - fluorine bonds, and reports of its accumulation in wildlife and the environment have attracted international attention and concern, leading to the designation of PFOS as a persistent organic pollutant (POP).The persistent nature of PFOS prevents oxidative decomposition using wet chemical oxidation TOC analyzers; however, the Shimadzu high-temperature catalytic combustion TOC analyzer quantitatively recovers PFOS with high sensitivity and accuracy. Here, we demonstrate measurement of PFOS using the TOC-LCPH high-temperature catalytic combustion and the TOC-VWS wet chemical oxidation total organic carbon analyzers.

Phosphorus control protects surface waters
Phosphorus is the decisive factor for excessive algae and plant growth in water bodies, that’s why quality standards require reductions in the amount of phosphorus released from wastewater treatment plants into rivers and lakes. In recent years, the outlet limit values have not only been reduced on national levels. Depending on the vulnerability of ecosystems, especially low target values have been defined on regional levels. Examples are regional values for Lake Constance, the Baltic Sea or the Colorado...
PureAire Oxygen Analyzers & Oxygen Monitors for Nitrogen Generators
Nitrogen has many uses in industrial applications where oxidation would be undesirable. From carbonizing beer to preserving food, reducing fire danger, and cleaning equipment, nitrogen is a safe,inexpensive gas. For companies that need a steady supply of nitrogen gas, nitrogen generators work well. Learn about the uses of nitrogen generators and why you should use oxygen monitors in environments where nitrogen gas is created. How Nitrogen Generators Work Nitrogen for packaging works well in the food and...
FTIR gas analyzers support management of fire at UK waste facility
The capability to convene a multi-agency Air Quality Cell (AQC) was established in England in 2009 following the Buncefield Oil Storage Depot incident. A review of this event identified the need to rapidly co-ordinate the acquisition, analysis and interpretation of air quality data in major incidents. Arrangements have been made in England to bring together experts from the Environment Agency (EA), Public Health England (PHE) and the UK Meteorological Office on a 24/7, 365 days and year basis to form an AQC for...
PureAire Oxygen Analyzer for 3D Printers: How Argon is used and Why O2 Detection is Required
Thanks to new technologies, the 3D printers that have been used to create plastic three-dimensional objects can now print metal. Titanium 3D printing is possible thanks to a technique called DMLS, or Direct Metal Laser Sintering. While the potential to use titanium 3D printing is groundbreaking for many industries, the new advances could pose a health hazard if volatile gases used in the printing process are not contained. Learn more about the role of argon in 3D printing and how an oxygen analyzer can safeguard...
An analysis of lethal and sublethal interactions among type I and type II pyrethroid pesticide ...
A novel 2‐tiered analytical approach was used to characterize and quantify interactions between type I and type II pyrethroids in Hyalella azteca using standardized water column toxicity tests. Bifenthrin, permethrin, cyfluthrin, and lambda‐cyhalothrin were tested in all possible binary combinations across 6 experiments. All mixtures were analyzed for 4‐d lethality, and 2 of the 6 mixtures (permethrin–bifenthrin and permethrin–cyfluthrin) were tested for subchronic 10‐d lethality and sublethal effects on swimming...
