Paper Abstract

Continuous particle and volatile organic compound (VOC) monitoring in residential homes were combined to measure indoor air quality. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) was used to monitor the VOCs. There are several advantages to this technique, including quantifying components, identification of unexpected components, following levels of these components with time, and identifying sources of specific VOCs. In addition, the relationship of human activities to VOC levels was determined. In addition to the FTIR measurements, we have made measurements on particulate levels which are important to consider for indoor air quality.
