Abstract
The paper discusses approaches currently used by indoor air quality (IAQ) researchers and practitioners to characterize emissions from indoor materials, including the interaction of these emissions with indoor sinks. Procedures for analyzing chamber test data to produce emission rates and adsorption/desorption rate constants are discussed, as is the use of these results in IAQ models to predict occupant exposure. Evaluating materials to ensure healthy buildings requires source characterization coupled with exposure assessment.
