"The book provides the reader with a clear introduction to an important area of indoor air research. It will serve as a useful guide for chemists, physicists, biologists and medical doctors at universities and research facilities, in industry and environmental laboratories, as well as regulative bodies." (Chemistry Journals, 11 April 2011)
"One excellent thing about this book is that at the end of most chapters there is a summary paragraph entitled ‘‘Concluding remarks'' an idea that could well be copied by others." (Chromatographia, December 2010)
From the Back Cover
Sources of indoor air pollutants, measurement and detection as well as evaluation are covered filling the gap in the literature caused by this topical subject.
This book is divided into four clearly defined parts: measuring organic indoor pollutants, investigation concepts and quality guidelines, field studies, and emission studies. The authors cover physico-chemical fundamentals of organic pollutants, relevant definitions and terminology, emission sources, sampling techniques and instrumentation, exposure assessment as well as methods for control. Test methods and studies for various indoor environments are described, such as automobile interiors, museum environments, or rooms with air ventilation. Emission sources covered include household and consumer products as well as electronic devices and office equipment.
The book is aimed at chemists, physicists, biologists, and medical doctors at universities and research facilities, in industry and environmental laboratories as well as regulative bodies.
