Two aerobic alkane-degrading Pseudomonas can biodefluorinate 8:2, 6:2 and 4:2 fluorotelomer alcohols (FTOHs) into various fluorinated metabolites, including polyfluorinated acids and shorter-chain perfluorinated carboxylic acids (PFCAs). The two Pseudomonas strains biotransformed FTOHs using two different transformation pathways to remove multiple –CF2–groups from FTOHs to form shorter-chain PFCAs.
