    Department of Chemistry, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, M5S 3H6, Canada
    Rev Environ Contam Toxicol 208:1-109. 2010
    ..It is clear that atmospheric oxidation of volatile precursors contributes to the overall burden of PFAs, though the extent to which this occurs is compound and environment dependent and is difficult to assess accurately...

    Cora J Young
    Department of Chemistry, University of Toronto, 80 St George Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5S 3H6
    J Phys Chem A 112:13542-8. 2008
    ..A mechanism for the atmospheric oxidation of fluorotelomer iodides, (C(x)F(2x+1)CH(2)CH(2)I, where x = 2, 4, 6,...) is proposed. Atmospheric oxidation of fluorotelomer iodides is a potential source of perfluorocarboxylic acids...

    Derek A Jackson
    Department of Chemistry, University of Toronto, 80 St George Street, Toronto, ON, Canada M5S 3H6
    Environ Sci Technol 45:8030-6. 2011
    ..The atmospheric fate of PFMP seems to be direct photolysis which, under low NO(x) conditions, gives PFPrA in a small yield. PFMP degradation contributes to, but does not appear to be the major source of, PFPrA observed in rainwater...

    Environ Sci Technol 41:3455-61. 2007
    ..A decrease in PFOS concentrations through time was observed, suggesting a fast response to changes in production. These data suggest that atmospheric oxidation of volatile precursors is a primary source of PFAs to the Arctic...

    Environ Sci Technol 40:2242-6. 2006
    ..PFPMIE was shown to have instantaneous radiative forcing of 0.65 W m(-2) ppb(-1), which corresponds to a global warming potential on a 100 year time scale of 9000 relative to CO2 and 1.95 relative to CFC-11...
