The quality of indoor air is influenced by chemical contamination from several sources. The main sources of indoor air pollution are infiltration of the outdoor air, volatile compounds from contaminated ground, and emissions from building materials. Naturally, the indoor use and generation of chemicals are relevant sources too. The research activities of the Institute for Ecological Chemistry have been focused on the behavior of semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs) coming from wood preservation paints used indoors, case studies following problems dealing with indoor air quality, and the occurrence of indoor volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the Bavarian region.
