[More] CsPbX3 (X = Cl, Br, I) perovskite nanocrystals (NCs) have attracted much attention as promising materials for next-generation optoelectronic applications. However, improvement of their low stabilities against heating and humidity is needed for practical use. In this work, we focused on perfluorodecanoic acid (PFDA) as a surface ligand and investigated the thermal and chemical stabilities of the photoluminescence (PL) properties of CsPbBr3 NCs. Oleic acid (OA) adsorbed on the NCs was exchanged for decanoic acid (DA) and PFDA. OA-modified and DA-modified NCs exhibited drastic fluorescence quenching to 12.9 and 21.1% of their initial PL intensities, respectively, after heating at 100 °C for 4 h. In contrast, the PFDA-modified NCs maintained 92.1% of their PL intensity after the same heating. Furthermore, the polar solvent resistance was also improved by PFDA modification. These improvements can be attributed to the strong adsorptivity and high chemical stability of the PFDA ligand.

[Less] Inhibiting the attachment of bacteria and the formation of biofilms on surfaces of materials and devices . . . [More] Inhibiting the attachment of bacteria and the formation of biofilms on surfaces of materials and devices is the key to ensure public safety and is also the focus of attention and research. Here we report on the synthesis of multifunctional antibacterial materials based on water dispersible random copolymers containing a fluorinated block, poly(acrylic acid-co-1H,1H,2H,2H-perfluorododecyl acrylate) (PAA-co-PFDA), and poly(hexamethylene biguanide) hydrochloride (PHMB). PAA-co-PFDA copolymers were synthesized through a simple free radical polymerization. After lightly cross-linking of PAA-co-PFDA and complexation with PHMB, multifunctional antibacterial PAA-co-PFDA/PHMB complex nanoparticles were generated, which can form transparent coatings on various substrates. The resultant coating has aggregation-induced emission character which can be used to observe the uniformity of the coating on a catheter and has a potential application as a fluorescence probe. It has been demonstrated that the PAA-co-PFDA/PHMB complex nanoparticle coatings can resist bacterial adhesion in physiological environment and exhibit excellent antibacterial activity in infection environment. In vitro and in vivo experiments indicated that the PAA-co-PFDA/PHMB complex nanoparticle coated catheters exhibited excellent antibacterial activity and possessed good biocompatibility. This method is simple and scalable, which is important for future commercialization. The attractive multifunctional properties of the PAA-co-PFDA/PHMB complex nanoparticles, such as antifouling, antimicrobial, emission, and pH-responsive release character, have great potential application in a wide range of biomedical fields.

[More] This work examined the contamination of poly- and perfluorinated compounds (PFASs) in the water and sediment of the Baiyangdian Lake. The total concentration of PFASs in the surface water varied from 140.5 to 1828.5 ng/L, and the highest concentration of PFASs were observed near the entrance of Fuhe river. The topmost contaminant was sodium perfluorohexanesulfonate (PFHxS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in the north and south of the Baiyangdian Lake respectively, which indicated different contamination sources. The total concentration of PFASs in the sediment varied from 0.48 to 30 ng/g, and the distribution of PFASs in the sediment was similar with that in the surface water. The concentrations of polyfluoroalkyl phosphoric diesters (diPAPs) were three to four orders of magnitude lower than those of perfluorocarboxylates (PFCAs) and PFSAs. Although the pore water and the surface water had similar ΣPFASs, the concentration of perfluorodecanoic acid (PFDA) in pore water was 1.4 to 4.4 times higher than that in surface water, and the concentration of perfluoropentanoic acid (PFPeA) in pore water was 20-70% that in surface water. The results of ecological risk assessment showed that the PFASs were currently of no immediate risk to the aquatic life.

[More] In this study, the efficiencies of selected wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) to remove selected perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) during wastewater treatment processes were evaluated. For this purpose, influent samples from Daspoort, Zeekoegat and Phola WWTPs, were initially screened for the presence of sixteen different PFASs of which only seven were detected. These include: perfluorobutanoic acid (PFBA), perfluoro-n-pentanoic acid (PFPeA), perfluorohexanoic acid (PFHxA), perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), perfluorodecanoic acid (PFDA), perfluorohexane sulfonate (L-PFHxS), and perfluorooctane sulfonate (L-PFOS). To determine the concentrations of these PFASs, wastewater samples were subjected to solid-phase extraction followed by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. The results showed that L-PFOS was the dominant compound with the highest concentration of 508 ± 258 ng/L at Daspoort WWTP. Overall, the three WWTPs could not achieve the complete influent-to-effluent removal of the PFASs and the best removals were observed at Zeekoegat WWTP. The removal efficiency of the different unit processes varied from one plant to another and also from each type of PFASs. At Daspoort, the removal efficiency of the primary settling tanks was poor and the highest removal reached 39% for PFHxA. The activated sludge (AS) of this WWTP achieved the highest removal of 84% for the L-PFOS. At Zeekoegat, the AS achieved the highest removal of 94% for the L-PFOS. The anaerobic pond at Phola achieved a higher removal of 80% for the L-PFOS. However, no removal was observed downstream of the biological filter for the same compound. Poor removal efficiency was reported downstream of the wetland at Phola except for the PFOA (16%).

Authors: Chen, H; Wang, Q; Cai, Y; Yuan, R; Wang, F; Zhou, B (2020) International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health 17. HERO ID: 6324256

[Less] Perfluoroalkyl carboxylic acids (PFCAs) are some of the most significant pollutants in human serum, . . . [More] Perfluoroalkyl carboxylic acids (PFCAs) are some of the most significant pollutants in human serum, and are reported to be potentially toxic to humans. In this study, the binding mechanism of PFCAs with different carbon lengths to human serum albumin (HSA) was studied at the molecular level by means of fluorescence spectroscopy under simulated physiological conditions and molecular modeling. Fluorescence data indicate that PFCAs with a longer carbon chain have a stronger fluorescence quenching ability. Perfluorobutanoic acid (PFBA) and perfluorohexanoic acid (PFHxA) had little effect on HSA. Fluorescence quenching of HSA by perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorodecanoic acid (PFDA) was a static process that formed a PFCA-HSA complex. Electrostatic interactions were the main intermolecular forces between PFOA and HSA, while hydrogen bonding and van der Waals interactions played important roles in the combination of PFDA and HSA. In fact, the binding of PFDA to HSA was stronger than that of PFOA as supported by fluorescence quenching and molecular docking. In addition, infrared spectroscopy demonstrated that the binding of PFOA/PFDA resulted in a sharp decrease in the β-sheet and α-helix conformations of HSA. Our results indicated that the carbon chain length of PFCAs had a great impact on its binding affinity, and that PFCAs with longer carbon chains bound more strongly.

[Less] Long-chain perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) such as perfluorodecanoic acid (PFDA) are toxic, persistent . . . [More] Long-chain perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) such as perfluorodecanoic acid (PFDA) are toxic, persistent organic pollutants. This study investigated the harmful effect of PFDA on mouse primary nephrocytes and its mechanism at cellular and molecular levels. Cellular results showed that PFDA exhibited nephrotoxicity with decreased cell viability and increased apoptosis. The increase of intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) content and the decrease of intracellular superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity were significant (p < 0.01) when PFDA concentration exceeded 10 μM. Additionally, the molecular results indicated that PFDA bind with Val-A98 in the surface of Cu/Zn-SOD by a 3.11 Å hydrogen bond driven by Van der Waals' force and hydrogen bonding force, which triggered the structural changes and decreased activity of Cu/Zn-SOD. Altogether, the intracellular oxidative stress is the main driver of nephrocyte apoptosis; and the interaction of PFDA and Cu/Zn-SOD exacerbated the oxidative stress in nephrocytes, which is also a nonnegligible reason of cytotoxicity induced by PDFA. This study represented a meaningful method to explore the toxic effect and mechanism of xenobiotics at cellular and molecular levels. The findings have implications for revealing the clearance of long-chain PFAAs in vivo.

[More] Perfluorodecanoic acid (PFDA) is a highly toxic food contaminant that is extensively used in food applications as surface antifouling agent. In this present study, we aimed to assess whether green tea polyphenols (GTPs) and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) exert protective effects against PFDA-induced liver damage and inflammation in mice. A mouse model to evaluate liver toxicity was established by giving mice drinking water containing different concentrations of PFDA. GTPs or EGCG (0.32%, w/v) were co-administered to mice exposed to PFDA in drinking water. Overall, GTPs and EGCG extended the survival time and inhibited weight loss among mice who received a lower dose of PFDA. Moreover, GTPs and EGCG ameliorated hepatic oxidative stress, cell apoptosis, necrosis, steatosis, edema, and degeneration, reduced hepatic inflammation and NLRP3 inflammasome activation caused by a moderate dose of PFDA. Taken together, these results show that GTPs or EGCG (or green tea intake) supplements can be beneficial for people exposed to PFDA.

[More] Studies of firefighters have shown increased exposures to carcinogenic compounds and elevated rates of certain cancers compared to the general population, yet this research has focused almost exclusively on men. To address this gap, the Women Firefighters Biomonitoring Collaborative created a biological sample archive and analyzed levels of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) among women firefighters (N = 86) and office workers (N = 84) in San Francisco. Serum samples were collected and analyzed using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) to measure and compare PFAS levels between firefighters and office workers. 7 of 12 PFAS congeners were detected in the least 70% of the study population, and 4 congeners were detected in 100% of participants. In regression models comparing PFAS levels by occupation and adjusting for potential confounders, firefighters had higher geometric mean concentrations of PFAS compared to office workers PFHxS (2.22 (95% CI = 1.55, 3.18)), PFUnDA (1.83 (95% CI = 0.97, 3.45)), and PFNA (1.26 (95% CI = 1.01, 1.58)). Among firefighters, occupational position predicted exposure-firefighters and officers had higher PFNA, PFOA, PFDA, and PFUnDA levels compared to drivers. Women firefighters are exposed to higher levels of some PFAS compared to office workers, suggesting that some of these exposures may be occupationally related.

[More] Perfluorocarboxylic acids (PFCAs) are environmental contaminants that are highly persistent, and many are bio-accumulative and have been detected along with their atmospheric precursors far from emission sources. The overall importance of precursor emissions as an indirect source of PFCAs to the environment is uncertain. Previous studies have estimated the atmospheric source of PFCAs using models and degradation pathways of differing complexities, leading to quantitatively different results. We present results from simulations of atmospheric PFCA formation and fate using the chemical transport model GEOS-Chem. We simulate the most up-to-date chemistry available to our knowledge for the degradation of the precursors fluorotelomer alcohol (FTOH), fluorotelomer olefin (FTO), and fluorotelomer iodide (FTI), as well as the deposition and transport of the precursors, intermediates and end-products of the formation chemistry. We calculate yields of C3-C13 PFCAs formed from 4 : 2 to 12 : 2 fluorotelomer precursors and their deposition to the surface. We find that the ratio of long-chain to short-chain PFCAs increases strongly with distance from source regions. We compare our model results to remote deposition measurements and mid-latitude rainwater measurements. The model captures the observed relationship between rainwater abundance and PFCA chain length, as well as the average deposition rates at mid-latitude and Arctic sites, but underestimates the deposition of PFDoA, PFDA, and TFA at mid-latitudes and PFNA at the Devon Ice Cap. We provide estimates of cumulative PFCA deposition globally. We find that given the most recent emission inventory, the atmospheric source of PFCAs is 6-185 tonnes per year globally and 0.1-2.1 tonnes per year to the Arctic.
