  1. 1. Thin films for indoor air monitoring : Measurements of Volatile Organic Compounds

    Författare :Umut Cindemir; Niklasson Gunnar; Claes-Göran Granqvist; Lars Österlund; Magnus Willander; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; gas sensor; thin film; adcanced gas depostion; sputter deposition; nickel oxide; gold nanoparticles; indium tin oxide; acetaldehyde; formaldehyde;

    Sammanfattning : Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the indoor air have adverse effects on the dwellers residing in a building or a vehicle. One of these effects is called sick building syndrome (SBS). LÄS MER

  2. 2. Volatile organic compounds from microorganisms : identification and health effects

    Författare :Anna-Sara Claeson; Anna-Lena Sunesson; Jan-Olof Levin; Steven Nordin; Bengt Järvholm; Charles Weschler; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :microorganisms; building materials; VOCs; MVOCs; amines; LC-MS MS; exposure; perceived air quality; Occupational and Environmental Medicine; arbets- och miljömedicin;

    Sammanfattning : Damp building materials are subjected to degradation processes due to moisture and also microbial growth, with both of these giving rise to emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that may contribute to indoor air health problems. The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate emissions of reactive and non-reactive VOCs from damp building materials and from the microorganisms growing on them, and also to investigate the possible health impact of these compounds.

  3. 3. Emissions of volatile organic compounds from wood

    Författare :Karin Granström; Bengt Månsson; Ann-Margret Strömvall; Karlstads universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; VOC; terpenes; drying; wood; emissions; spouted bed; Environmental engineering; Miljöteknik; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems;

    Sammanfattning : The central aim of this thesis is to support the efforts to counteract certain environmental problems caused by emissions of volatile organic compounds. The purpose of this work was (1) to develop a method to establish the amount of emitted substances from dryers, (2) to determine the effect of drying medium temperature and end moisture content of the processed material on emissions of monoterpenes and other hydrocarbons, (3) to examine the emissions of monoterpenes during production of pellets, and (4) to examine the natural emissions from forests with an eye to implications for modelling.

  4. 4. Low-Temperature Oxidation of CO and Volatile Organic Compounds over Supported Platinum Catalysts

    Författare :Karl Arnby; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :hexamethyldisiloxane; alumina; catalytic deactivation; environmental catalysis; platinum; volatile organic compounds; carbon monoxide; low-temperature activity;

    Sammanfattning : The catalytic oxidation of carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) is important for the reduction of harmful emissions from both vehicles and from stationary sources. Both these applications suffer from poor catalytic efficiency at lower temperatures. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Formation, ageing and thermal properties of secondary organic aerosol

    Författare :Eva U. Emanuelsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :volatile organic compounds; biogenic; anthropogenic; secondary organic aerosol; troposphere; volatility; ozone;

    Sammanfattning : In order to properly represent and predict the effects of aerosol in climate systems, an accurate description of their formation and properties is needed. This thesis describes work done to increase the knowledge of processes and properties of atmospherically relevant secondary organic aerosol (SOA) from both biogenic and anthropogenic origin. LÄS MER
