Abstract

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the air of 51 renovated rooms in Schleswig-Holstein were measured. The examined buildings were of different kinds (private flats, schools, kindergarten, office buildings), renovation within the last two years being the only common characteristic. A tentative attempt was made to illustrate the simultaneous occurences of different substances along with their potential sources and the observed health impairments. Finally, VOC emissions for two carpet glues suspected as potential sources of the less common substances, were measured under test chamber conditions.
