Abstract

The second interlaboratory study of the measurement of VOCs was organised by the European collaborative action on indoor air quality. The results show that the preparation of paint samples contributed markedly to the variance in VOC measurements because of the differences in paint thickness. Despite the use of calibration solutions prepared from the same batch of pure compounds, the analysis of the compound concentrations contributed markedly to the variance, as confirmed by the results of an analytical comparison carried out in parallel with the main comparison. Model fitting has produced a reasonably good description of the data sets, apparently accounting also for the sink due to chamber wall adsorption.
