The deliberate generation of ozone in indoor settings has been promoted as a method to reduce the concentration of indoor pollutants. The present study examines the effect of ozone on a subset of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found in tobacco smoke. The decays of these compounds were measured in a static room-sized chamber: (1) in the absence of ozone, (2) in the presence of moderate ozone concentrations (< 0.115 ppm), and (3) in the presence of high ozone concentrations (< 1.4 ppm).
