Abstract

Perfluorinated organic compounds have been recognized in recent years as globally distributed
persistent organic pollutants of an entirely anthropogenic origin, but present already even in the most
remote places of the globe, including organisms of wild fauna. Numerous studies have also shown that
they are contained in human organisms all over the world. In this work a special attention is given to
perfluorinated carboxylic acids (PFCAs), widely used in various areas of modern life. New methods
developed for their determination using the HPLC with fluorescence detection and capillary electrophoretic
methods are discussed, as well as the new method for the determination of total organic fluorine
(TOF). (doi: 10.5562/cca1776)
