The surface interactions of nicotine and phenanthrene with carpet, painted wallboard, and stainless steel were investigated in a room-sized environmental test chamber. Adsorption kinetics were tested by flash evaporating a known mass of each compound into a sealed 20 m3 chamber containing one or more of the tested sorbents. In each experiment, one or more(More)
Recently developed models and data describing the interactions of gas-phase semi-volatile organic compounds with indoor surfaces are employed to examine the effects of sorption on nicotine's suitability as an environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) marker. Using parameters from our studies of nicotine sorption on carpet, painted wallboard, and stainless steel and(More)
