International scientists offer crucial reviews concerned with the environmental chemistry and toxicity of oxidants and their role in pollution control. This volume deals with various methods used in sampling and analyzing gaseous contaminants in the atmosphere, with an emphasis on understanding the chemical and physical processes that take place. This study evaluates the condition of current measurement technology, profiles current research results, and outlines the research challenges that lie ahead in this field. Additionally, the book provides an authoritative overview of the sources, occurrences and characterization of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in indoor environments.
