||Chemical contaminants in office buildings
||Dec. 1990, Vol.51, No.12, p.615-619. Illus. 22 ref.
||Air quality measurements were made in 17 buildings in Quebec. Contaminants measured included airborne dust, nicotine, volatile organic compounds, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, ozone and radon. The feasibility of using carbon dioxide as an air quality indicator of other airborne contaminants was also evaluted. Chemical contaminant levels were found to be low, but the presence of these chemicals in indoor air is of concern because of their possible synergistic effects. Airborne concentrations of dust, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide were found to be higher than the values recommended for nonindustrial air. Carbon dioxide can be used as an air quality indicator for contaminants related to occupant activity.
