A pilot field study was performed in Columbus, Ohio during the winter of 1986-1987. The objectives were to determine the feasibility of the use of a newly developed quiet sampler in indoor air sampling for particles and semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs), and to estimate the range of concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), PAH derivatives, and nicotine in air in selected residences. Eight homes were chosen for sampling on the basis of these characteristics: electric/gas heat, electric/gas cookstove, and absence/presence of environmental tobaccos smoke (ETS). Fifteen PAH, five nitro-PAH, five oxygenated PAH, and three nitrogen heterocyclic compounds were determined. The sampler performed well and met all design expectations.
