INTRODUCTION: Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and health. VOCs, present in the indoor air and adsorbed on/desorbed from solid surfaces, are suspected to contribute significantly to a number of health problems by respiration of air and polluted dust and by direct contact with the skin.VOC Sources.ADSORPTION/DESORPTION IN BUILDING MATERIALS: Short description of our research project which deals with lab size and full scale experiments, mathematical modelling and development of a standard test method for characterization of the sorption properties of indoor materials.STUDIES OF ADSORPTION/DESORPTION IN DUST:Collection and description of dust, experimental setup and procedure for measuring equilibria and kinetics. Experimental results for adsorption/desorption of a gaseous mixture of synthetic air, 2-butoxyethanol and water on different dust samples.
