Abstract
Acute or chronic exposure to the thousands of minor components that can be present in the air we breathe may cause adverse health effects. Such exposure may occur in the workplace, home, or outdoor environment. Monitoring of these components is required to ensure compliance with recommended or regulated air quality standards. The preferred monitoring method would give a continuous and accurate measurement of instantaneous changes in the concentration of each harmful species present, in a manner that would model human exposure. The compromise most often applied in practice is to extract the components from a large volume (to provide sensitivity) of breathing zone air together with subsequent laboratory analysis (to provide selectivity).
