Perfluorodecanoic acid (PFDA) is a fluorosurfactant and has been used in industry,[2] with applications as wetting agent and flame retardant.[3]

It was recently linked to health concerns,[4] like other fluorosurfactants, leading to proposed restrictions on its use.[5] In 2020, a California bill banned its use as an intentionally added ingredient in cosmetics.[6]

It has been proposed as a chemical probe to study peroxisome proliferation.[7][8]
