The human breath contains a variety of endogenous volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The origin and pathophysiological importance of these VOCs is poorly investigated. Little is known about the interaction of VOCs from ambient air, such as those produced by plants and exhaust fumes, with the human organism. Gas chromatographic determination of VOC concentrations is tedious. Proton-transfer-mass spectroscopy (PTR-MS), a new technology for the online detection of VOC patterns, is a valuable… CONTINUE READING
