Striking differences in air pollution levels inside and outside of private houses and public buildings led to the conception of the ""Indoor Pollution"" project. The study will be focussed on organic emissions in private houses, school rooms and department stores. The final goal is to reconsider the relevance of air quality standards. The title ""Chemical Products (Organics)"" is related to the activities of a research group at the Petten establishment. This work is mainly concerned with analytical and synthesis aspects of organic chemicals related to environmental protection problems (e.g. carcinogenic and toxic substances). The project ""Air Quality"" deals with the analysis of atmospheric pollutants with special regard to particle formation and photochemical reactions. It is fully integrated into the COST 6la-bis concerted action ""Physico-chemical behaviour of atmospheric pollutants"". The project ""Water Quality"" focuses on the mass balance of nutrients in lakes, using a physico-chemical modelistic approach and the use of bioindicators for the characterization of freshwater pollution.
