Offre thèse: Chlorinated Paraffins, LABERCA (Oniris, France).

A 3-year PhD scholarship for a project on chlorinated paraffins is available at LABERCA (Oniris, France).

Chlorinated paraffins (CPs) are a family of high production volume chemicals, with applications as additives in cutting oil and lubricants as well as plasticizers and flame retardants. Technical mixtures consist in a range of homologue groups exhibiting different chemical formula, each one counting an undefined number of isomers. It is usual to distinguish short-chain (SCCPs, C10−C13) from medium-chain (MCCPs, C14−C17) and long-chain (LCCPs, C ≥ 18) CPs. From both environmental and human health perspectives, CPs are of growing concern, and considered as emerging chemical hazards. Particularly, SCCPs are currently candidate substances to be listed in the Stockholm Convention. For efficient risk assessment, data regarding their environmental occurrence, fate, toxicity and presence in human food chain are urgently needed.
