Effect of volatile organic compounds (vocs) such as benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene and other hazardous volatile organic materials on the ozone layer by studying the advantages and disadvantages of this material upon.
Indoor volatile organic compounds, or vocs, are carbon-containing organic chemicals present in indoor air they come from a large number of indoor sources including building materials, furnishings, consumer products, tobacco smoking, people and their activities, and indoor chemical reactions. Volatile organic compounds (vocs) are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids vocs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects concentrations of many vocs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors.
Who is at risk for exposure to volatile organic compounds (vocs) consumers many consumer, building, and craft products release vocs cigarette smokers cigarette and secondhand smoke contain vocs vulnerable populations people with asthma, young children, and the elderly may be more susceptible to the effects of vocs. The mode of action of volatile compounds when it comes to an explanation of the biochemical mechanisms in- volved in the physiological effects of volatile compounds, i have always found the stimulations of growth and development more puzzling, and thus more interesting, than the inhibitions. People spend most of their time indoors, leaving them susceptible to the harmful effects of volatile organic compound (voc) exposure the inhalation of air pollutants may cause symptoms that most would not initially associate with voc exposure these include headaches, fatigue, nausea, allergic skin reaction, eye and respiratory irritation, etc.
The arb revised the definition of volatile organic compounds used in the consumer products regulations, based on their committee's findings canada health canada classifies vocs as organic compounds that have boiling points roughly in the range of 50 to 250 °c (122 to 482 °f) the emphasis is placed on commonly encountered vocs that would have an effect on air quality. Volatile organic compounds (vocs) are a large group of chemicals that are found in many products we use to build and maintain our homes once these chemicals are in our homes, they are released or “off-gas” into the indoor air we breathe.
