BIOSIS COPYRIGHT: BIOL ABS. Perfluorinated surfactants are used in aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) formulations, which are used to extinguish hydrocarbon-fuel fires. Virtually nothing is known about the occurrence of perfluorinated surfactants in the environment, in particular, at fire-training areas and emergency response sites where AFFF entered groundwater without prior treatment. Strong anion exchange Empore disks were used to extract perfluorocarboxylates from groundwater collected from fire-training facilities locat . The detection of perfluorocarboxylates at field sites after 7-10 years of inactivity indicates their potential utility as markers for delineating groundwater impacted by fire-fighting activity.
