||Irritation and odor as indicators of indoor pollution
||Jan.-Mar. 1995, Vol.10, No.1, p.133-145. Illus. 29 ref.
||Irritation and odour pollution are discussed in relation to health complaints associated with indoor air pollution. The use of biological assays to determine the potency of an irritant is described and investigations into odour and irritation thresholds in humans are discussed. Both animal and human data point to common physicochemical determinants of potency, especially for the weak irritants that often exist in indoor environments.
