Measuring VOCs in Indoor Air

Mon. January 30| 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM | N243

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) impact the indoor air quality and can have deleterious effects on human health. This session will describe instruments and laboratory-based methods available to measure VOCs. Technologies discussed will include photoionization detectors (PIDs), thermal desorption tubes, and whole air canisters. Mr. Ian Cull will describe advantages and disadvantages of each method and highlight situations that may be better suited for each. The session will also explain key principles needed to interpret the results from measurements of VOCs.
