organic compound

The use of test chambers for characterising the emissions of volatile organic compounds from indoor building materials.

Increasing interest is attributed to the problem of the accumulation of organic vapours emitted from indoor building materials due to an effective insulation of buildings with low ventilation rates. A measurement technique for determining emission rates using a 1 m3 laminar flow test chamber is described.
