The paper describes a recently completed EPA study of the emissions of p-dichlorobenzene from moth repellant. The product, commonly used by the general population to protect garments from insect damage, is widely available. Samples, in cake form, were purchased from a local department store for testing under conditions simulating the manufacturer's recommended usage. Temperature, relative humidity, and air exchange rates for each test were selected to investigate their effects on the rate of emission of p-dichlorobenzene from the product. Data were gathered using each set of test conditions for a period of time sufficient for the concentration in the chamber to stabilize. Emission rates were calculated and used to investigate the effects of the environmental variables.
