Native and Mass-labelled Organophosphorus Compounds | Wellington Laboratories | Greyhound Chromatography

Organophosphorus Compounds (OPs) are commonly utilised as flame retardants and plasticisers, but have also found use as antifoaming agents and additives in products such as lubricants and hydraulic fluids. Halogenated OPs are mainly used as flame retardants whreas non-halogenated OPs are typically utilised as plasticisers.  In either case, since ops are chemical additives, it is possible for them to migrate into the environment through volatilisation, abrasion, and dissolution with relative ease.  The release of these compounds into the environemnt is troubling because they are also known to be relatively stable toward biodegradation (especially the chlorinated OPs) and have been detected in a variety of matrices.  In order to aid researchers in the detection of OPs in environmental samples, Wellington Laboratories has produced a series of native and mass-labelled organophosphorus compounds to supplement their existing inventory.


Wellington Reporter - Aqueous Film-Forming Foam PFAS - August 27, 2018

In response to ever increasing reports of novel zwitterionic and cationic PFAS contaminants beign found at sites exposed to aqueous film-forming foams (AFFFs), Wellington Laboratories has expanded their PFAS product line to include three zwitterionic AFFF compounds, N-AP-FHxSA, N-TAmP-FHxSA, and N-CMAmP-6:2FOSA (which is commonly referred to as 6:2FTAB in the scientific literature), as well as neutral compouns also detected at impact sites (FHxSA-1 and FBSA-1).

Polychlorinated Naphthalenes 

Wellington Reporter - Polychlorinated Naphthalanes - August 27, 2018


Although the industrial production of polychlorinated napthalenes (PCNs) ceased in the 1970s/1980s, their persistence in the environment as well as their formation during incineratio0n processes has resulted in an ongoing demand for certified reference standards for this group of compounds.  In response to customer requests, Wellington Laboratories has expanded their line of native PCNs and prepared mixtures that will aid laboratories in their analysis of these persistant organic pollutants (POPs).

Wellington Laboratories are pleased to introduce a PCN window defining solution/mixture (PCN-WD), two PCN major congeners solutions/mixtures (PCN-HWX and PCN-INC, and a PCN potentially toxic congeners solution/mixture (PCN-TOX).  Please see the tables below for the composition of these mixtures.

Mass-Labelled anti-Dechlorane Plus Ma-DP ,  Wellington Laboratories Certified Reference Standard

Wellington Reporter Mass-Labelled anti-Dechlorane Plus Ma-DP - August 27, 2018

Dechlorane Plus® (DP) is a current use additive polychlorinated flame retardant with a variety of applications including electronic cables and wiring, and plastic building materials.  Due to rising concerns regarding the presence of DP, and its related compounds, in environmental samples, Wellington Laboratories has expanded their DP product line to include a mass-labelled anti-DP certified reference standard which will aid in the analysis of this group of compounds.

Perfluorinated Compounds (PFCs) Certified Reference Standards

Wellington Laboratories started to synthesize perfluorinated compounds in 2004 and since then has regularly added new native and mass-labelled standards to their inventory.   In the current Wellington Laboratories catalogue, pages 141 - 159 yiou will find individual standards of the following groups of compounds including, in most cases, mass-labelled analogues as well as some useful soultions/mixtures:

PFC-C-CVS Calibration Set and Support Solutions

Perfluoroalkanesulfonates (PFASs)

Perfluoroalkylcarboxylic acide (PFCAs)

Perfluorooctanesulfonamides (FOSAs)

Perfluorooctanesulfonamidoethanols (FOSEs)

Perfluorooctanesulfonamidoacetic (FOSAAs)

Fluorinated Telomer Alcohols (FTOHs)

Fluorinated Telomer Acids (FTAs)

Unsaturanted Telomer Acids (FTUAs)

Perfluoroalkylphosphonic Acids (PFAPAs)

Perfluoroalkylphosphonic Acids (X:XPFPi)

Polyfluorinated Phosphate Esters (PAPs and SAmPAPs)

Fluorinated Telomer Acrylates and Acetates (FTAcrs and FTOAcs)


PFCs are still emerging environmental contaminents and each of the groups of compounds listed above pose unique analytical challenges.  In addition, the individual isomers, such as the branched PFOA and PFOS isomers, are being found to have different toxicokinetic and ecokinetic properties.  Thus Weliington Laboratories' inventory  of PFCs will continue to grow, please visit Wellington's website www.well-labs.com for announcements of new products.
