HB 2006 - Healthy Buildings: Creating a Healthy Indoor Environment for People, Proceedings, June 4-8, 2006, Lisboa, Portugal, Santa Cruz, CA: International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate, 2011 Apr; :237-242
Chemical processes taking place in indoor environments can significantly alter the nature and concentrations of pollutants. Exposure to secondary contaminants generated in these reactions needs to be evaluated in association with many aspects of buildings to minimize their impact on occupant health and well-being. Focusing on indoor ozone chemistry, we describe alternatives for improving indoor air quality by controlling chemical changes related to building materials, ventilation systems, and occupant activities.
