Long-chain perfluorocarboxylic acids, their salts and related compounds
Long-chain PFCAs and their salts are a homologous series of substances with the molecular formula of CnF2n+1CO2H (where 8 ≤ n ≤ 20). Related compounds are viewed as any substance that is a precursor and may degrade or transform to long-chain PFCAs, where the perfluorinated alkyl moiety has the formula CnF2n+1 (where 8 ≤ n ≤ 20) and is directly bonded to any chemical moiety other than a fluorine, chlorine or bromine atom
