Recent regulatory pressure has altered the chemistry of per- and polyfluorinated compounds being manufactured and used in industrial and consumer applications. Many manufacturers have been moving toward the production of shorter chain per- and polyfluorinated compounds. A series of polyfluorinated compounds that contain central ether oxygens have been recently documented in the peer reviewed literature to be present in the Cape Fear River, NC in both surface and drinking water samples. Non-targeted analysis of water samples using high resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) LC/MSD TOF was used in the past to identify novel polyfluorinated compounds....
