    The chemicals, called short-chain chlorinated paraffins, persist in the environment, accumulate in human breast milk, can kill small aquatic creatures and travel to remote regions of the globe. Since their introduction in the 1930s, chlorinated paraffins have received little attention from U.S. authorities.

    Following the assessment of chlorinated paraffins conducted under the first Priority Substances List (PSL1), available data were considered inadequate to evaluate whether medium and long chain chlorinated paraffins were considered to be “toxic” as defined under section 11 of the 1988 Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA 1988). While information on the environmental effects of short ...

    Recent studies (>2010) reporting on environmental entry, fate & occurrence of chlorinated paraffins (CPs) were reviewed. • CPs are produced in high volumes (ca. 1000 kt yr −1) & are ubiquitously present in the environment, including remote areas.. Limited data suggest that MCCPs are being applied more frequently and have higher environmental levels than SCCPs.

    Short chain chlorinated paraffins (SCCPs) are semi-volatile chemicals that are considered persistent in the environment, potential toxic and subject to long-range transport. This study investigates the concentrations and gas-particle partitioning of SCCPs at an urban site in Beijing during summer and wintertime. The total atmospheric SCCP levels ranged 1.9–33.0 ng/m

    The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants is a multilateral treaty to protect human health and the environment from chemicals, known as POPs. POPs have harmful impacts on human health or on the environment. They remain intact in the environment for long periods, become widely distributed geographically and accumulate in the fatty tissue of humans and wildlife.

    Chlorinated paraffins are produced by chlorination of straight-chained paraffin fractions. The carbon chain length of commercial chlorinated paraffins is usually between 10 and 30 carbon atoms. Short-chained chlorinated paraffins is between C10 and C13. The production of SCCPs has decreased globally as jurisdictions have established control ...

    Chlorinated paraffins (CPs) are complex mixtures of polychlorinated n-alkanes.The chlorination degree of CPs can vary between 30 and 70 wt%.CPs are subdivided according to their carbon chain length into short-chain CPs (SCCPs, C 10–13), medium-chain CPs (MCCPs, C 14–17) and long-chain CPs (LCCPs, C >17).Depending on chain length and chlorine content, CPs are colorless or yellowish …
