One of the most frustrating things that we here at Biotage have had to deal with when we compare PFAS methods is the lack of a common naming convention for the compounds. It seems like every scientific article and every method contains at least one compound that either uses a new name or a new abbreviation and we have to spend excess time trying to confirm that yes, we're looking at the same compound. It's so annoying!
So when we found out that a few of our internal experts had created their own translation matrices to help keep track of a bunch of various names they've encountered and link them back to the CAS (Chemical Abstract Service) number, we just couldn't keep this to ourselves.
