Is there a human health risk associated with indirect exposure to perfluoroalkyl carboxylates (PFCAs)?

Authors: Rand, AA; Mabury, SA (2017) Toxicology 375:28-36. [Review] HERO ID: 3455968

[Less] The production and widespread use of poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) has led to their presence . . . [More] The production and widespread use of poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) has led to their presence in the environment, wildlife, and humans. Particularly, the perfluoroalkyl carboxylates (PFCAs) are pervasive throughout the world and have been found at ng/mL concentrations in human blood. PFCAs, especially those having longer carbon chain lengths (≥C6), are associated with developmental and hormonal effects, immunotoxicity, and promote tumor growth in rodents through their role as PPARα agonists. Humans are directly exposed to PFCAs primarily through contaminated food, drinking water, and house dust. However, indirect exposure to PFCAs through the biotransformation of fluorotelomer-based substances may also be a significant, yet relatively underappreciated pathway. We are exposed to fluorotelomer-based substances through use of consumer products, ingestion of food, or from inhalation of dust particles, but the risk of this exposure has been largely uncharacterized. Here, we summarize the work that has been done to characterize toxicity of the classes of fluorotelomer-based substances shown to biotransform to PFCAs: the polyfluoroalkyl phosphate esters (PAPs), fluorotelomer alcohols (FTOHs), fluorotelomer iodides (FTIs), and fluorotelomer acrylate monomers (FTAcs). These fluorotelomer-based substances biotranform to yield PFCAs, yet also form bioactive intermediate metabolites, which have been observed to be more toxic than their corresponding PFCAs. We address what is known regarding the toxicity of the fluorotelomer-based substances and their metabolites, with focus on covalent binding to biological nucleophiles, such as glutathione, proteins, and DNA, as a possible mechanism of toxicity that may influence the risk of indirect exposure to PFCAs.

Fluorophilicity and lipophilicity of fluorinated rhodamines determined by their partition coefficients in biphasic solvent systems

Authors: Jbeily, M; Kressler, J (2017) HERO ID: 3859230

[Less] The 1-octanol/water (In P-o/w) and perfluoro(methylcyclohexane)/toluene (In P-PFMC/Tol) partition coefficients . . . [More] The 1-octanol/water (In P-o/w) and perfluoro(methylcyclohexane)/toluene (In P-PFMC/Tol) partition coefficients were measured for four fluorinated rhodamine-based fluorescence dyes (F-rhodamines) functionalized with F-ponytails of various lengths CnH2n-CmF2m+1 (n = 1,2 and m = 3,7,8,10) at both amine groups. Here, the In P-o/w accounts usually for the lipophilic-hydrophilic ratio in ageous (biological) media whereas the In P-PFMC/Tol is a standard value for the description of the fluorophilic-lipophilic ratio. Both partition coefficients correlated with the CmF2m+1/CnH2n ratio, but not directly with the length of the F-ponytails. The ability of the F-rhodamines to incorporate into the hydrophobic part of the bilayer of giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs) of 1,2-dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphbcholine (DOPC) mixed with 1H,1H,2H,2H-perfluoro-1-octanol (F6H2OH) using confocal laser scanning microscopy was tested and the partitioning of the F-rhodamines into the mixed GUVs could not be explained exclusively using the two In P values mentioned above. Two other partition coefficients between F6H2OH/W (In P-F6H2OH/W) and perfluoro-n-octane/n-octane (In PF-oct/oct) were measured. The In PF-oct/oct correlated in a comparable way with the In P-PFMC/Tol, whereas In P-F6H2OH/W accounting for the fluorophilic-hydrophilic ratio correlated with the length of the F-ponytails and additionally clarified the different staining abilities of the synthesized F-rhodamines in the mixed GUVs.

[More] Fluorinated polycarbonate-based UV-curable polyurethane acrylate (F-PCUA) was synthesized by incorporating 1H, 1H, 2H, 2H-Perfluoro-1-octanol to the end of polycarbonate-based PUA chains. The structure of F-PCUA was determined by H-1-NMR, F-19-NMR, and FTIR analyses. The physical, surface, and thermal properties of F-PCUA were also examined. The F-PCUA was used as a hydrophobic additive in PUA coatings, and the water and oil wettability of the UV-cured film was investigated by contact angle measurements. The results showed that the coating system had great hydrophobicity. Furthermore, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy research confirmed that a hydrophobic fluorine-enriched surface was obtained in the coating system. Moreover, the mechanical and chemical properties of the hydrophobic coatings did not show deterioration with the introduction of elemental F.

HPLC-MS/MS methods for the determination of 52 perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances in aqueous samples

Authors: Gremmel, C; Frömel, T; Knepper, TP (2017) Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry 409:1643-1655. HERO ID: 3859232

[Less] Two quantitative methods using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) combined with triple quadrupole . . . [More] Two quantitative methods using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) combined with triple quadrupole tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) were developed to determine perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in aqueous samples. The first HPLC-MS/MS method was applied to 47 PFASs of 12 different substance classes with acidic characteristics such as perfluoroalkyl carboxylic acids (PFCAs) and perfluoroalkane sulfonic acids (PFSAs), as well as precursor substances and biotransformation intermediates (e.g., unsaturated fluorotelomer carboxylic acids). In addition, 25 (13)C-, (18)O-, and (2)H-labeled PFASs were used as internal standards in this method. The second HPLC-MS/MS method was applied to fluorotelomer alcohols (FTOHs) and perfluorooctane sulfonamidoethanols as these compounds have physicochemical properties different from those of the previous ones. Accuracy between 82% and 110% and a standard deviation in the range from 2% to 22% depending on the substances were determined during the evaluation of repeatability and precision. The method quantification limit after solid-phase extraction ranged from 0.3 to 199 ng/L depending on the analyte and matrix. The HPLC-MS/MS methods developed were suitable for the determination of PFASs in aqueous samples (e.g., wastewater treatment plant effluents or influents after solid-phase extraction). These methods will be helpful in monitoring campaigns to evaluate the relevance of precursor substances as indirect sources of perfluorinated substances in the environment. In one exemplary application in an industrial wastewater treatment plant, FTOHs were found to be the major substance class in the influent; in particular, 6:2-FTOH was the predominant compound in the industrial samples and accounted for 74% of the total PFAS concentration. The increase in the concentration of the transformation products of FTOHs in the corresponding effluent, such as fluorotelomer carboxylic acids, unsaturated fluorotelomer carboxylic acids, n:3 polyfluorinated saturated carboxylic acids (n indicates the number of nonfluorinated carbon atoms), and PFCAs, indicated biotransformation of FTOHs or their derivatives during wastewater treatment. However, only 33 mol% of the total amount of PFASs present in the influent was quantified in the corresponding effluent.

Aerobic biodegradation of 2 fluorotelomer sulfonamide-based aqueous film-forming foam components produces perfluoroalkyl carboxylates

Authors: D'Agostino, LA; Mabury, SA (2017) Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry 36:2012-2021. HERO ID: 3859275

[Less] The biodegradation of 2 common fluorotelomer surfactants used in aqueous film forming foams (AFFFs), . . . [More] The biodegradation of 2 common fluorotelomer surfactants used in aqueous film forming foams (AFFFs), 6:2 fluorotelomer sulfonamide alkylamine (FTAA) and 6:2 fluorotelomer sulfonamide alkylbetaine (FTAB), was investigated over 109 d with aerobic wastewater-treatment plant (WWTP) sludge. Results show that biodegradation of 6:2 FTAA and 6:2 FTAB produces 6:2 fluorotelomer alcohol (FTOH), 6:2 fluorotelomer carboxylic acid (FTCA), 6:2 fluorotelomer unsaturated carboxylic acid (FTUCA), 5:3 FTCA, and short-chain perfluoroalkyl carboxylates (PFCAs). Additional degradation products included 6:2 fluorotelomer sulfonamide (FTSAm), which was a major degradation product in the presence of either active or sterilized sludge, whereas 6:2 fluorotelomer sulfonate (FTSA) production was measured with sterilized sludge only. Six additional degradation products were tentatively identified by quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry (qTOF-MS) and attributed to N-dealkylation and oxidation of 6:2 FTAA.

[Less] The contamination levels and patterns of perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) and their precursors in indoor . . . [More] The contamination levels and patterns of perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) and their precursors in indoor air of children's bedrooms in Finland, Northern Europe, were investigated. Our study is among the most comprehensive indoor air monitoring studies (n = 57) and to our knowledge the first one to analyse air in children's bedrooms for PFASs (17 PFAAs and 9 precursors, including two acrylates, 6:2 FTAC and 6:2 FTMAC). The most frequently detected compound was 8:2 fluorotelomer alcohol (8:2 FTOH) with the highest median concentration (3570 pg/m(3)). FTOH concentrations were generally similar to previous studies, indicating that in 2014/2015 the impact of the industrial transition had been minor on FTOH levels in indoor air. However, in contrast to earlier studies (with one exception), median concentrations of 6:2 FTOH were higher than 10:2 FTOH. The C8 PFAAs are still the most abundant acids, even though they have now been phased out by major manufacturers. The mean concentrations of FOSE/As, especially MeFOSE (89.9 pg/m(3)), were at least an order of magnitude lower compared to previous studies. Collectively the comparison of FTOHs, PFAAs and FOSE/FOSAs with previous studies indicates that indoor air levels of PFASs display a time lag to changes in production of several years. This is the first indoor air study investigating 6:2 FTMAC, which was frequently detected (58%) and displayed some of the highest maximum concentrations (13 000 pg/m(3)). There were several statistically significant correlations between particular house and room characteristics and PFAS concentrations, most interestingly higher EtFOSE air concentrations in rooms with plastic floors compared to wood or laminate.

[More] In order to improve the tribological properties of perfluoropolyethers (PFPE), fluorinated candle soot is adopted as the lubricant additive because of their special onion-like structure. The candle soot particles (CSP) are modified by 1H, 1H, 2H, 2H-perfluorooctanol (CSP-PFHE nanoparticles), and after the fluorination, they exhibit good dispersivity in PFPE. The mixtures composed of CSP-PFHE nanoparticles and PFPE possess better tribological performance than neat PFPE under different test conditions including variable temperature, the irradiation of atomic oxygen and extreme pressure. The reason can be attributed to that the graphene layers are exfoliated from the surfaces of nanoparticles and adhere onto the steel surfaces to form the tribofilm, which can protect the sliding pairs surfaces from friction and severe wear. Meanwhile, the redundant nanoparticles act as the rolling bearing between the sliding surfaces to decrease the wear and some are packed into the corrosion pits generated by PFPE to prevent further erosion in the process of friction. At the end, the lubricating mechanism of CSP-PFHE nanoparticles as additives of PFPE is proposed based on the test results of scanning electron microscope, contact electrical resistance and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
