Potential sources of the biopersistent perfluorochemicals, perfluorooctane sulphonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) found at trace levels in human serum were investigated. The migration of PFOS from oil/moisture-resistant paper coatings based on perfluorochemicals, and of PFOA from poly(tetrafluoroethylene) non-stick coatings used in cookware was studied using LC-MS analysis of food simulants and the results are discussed. 23 refs.
