The paper reports on small chamber tests and on the development of sink models based on fundamental mass transfer theory. The interaction of indoor air pollutants with interior surfaces (i.e., sinks) is a well known, but poorly understood phenomenon. Studies have shown that re-emissions of adsorbed organic vapors can contribute to elevated concentrations in indoor environments. Research is being conducted in small environmental test chambers to develop data for predicting sink behavior.
