Persistent Organic Pollutants
POPs are chemical substances that persist in the environment, and bioaccumulate through the food web, posing a risk of causing detrimental effects to human health and the environment.
A specific list of POPs was defined in 1995 by the United Nations and was the center of the Stockholm Convention in 2001. The list originally included “the dirty dozen” and was expanded to include other pesticides, PBDEs, and some chemicals used in industrial processes.
Target Analysis has a list of manufacturers working together through the trade network to bring you a complete list of POPs in many matrix options, concentrations, purities, and forms.
