Title: Real-time degradation dynamics of hydrated per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in the presence of excess electrons

Abstract

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are harmful man-made chemicals that have contaminated several drinking water resources worldwide. Our work provides the first real-time assessment of PFAS degradation in the presence of excess electrons.
