Formaldehyde, less volatile aldehydes, and terpene hydrocarbons are generally the predominant air contaminants in new manufactured and site-built houses. This study was conducted to identify the major sources of these compounds in a typically constructed, new manufactured house and to evaluate several source reduction practices. Specimens of materials used within the house were collected. These were individually pre-conditioned for 19 +/- 4 days, and tested for emissions of formaldehyde and… Expand
Formaldehyde and volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from particleboard: Identification of odorous compounds and effects of heat treatment
Abstract Furniture and building/furnishing materials are major sources of indoor volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and the VOC emission characteristics of these materials are essential forExpand
Effects of the Manufacturing Conditions on the VOCs Emissions of Particleboard
The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from wood-based panels are hazardous to indoor air quality. Usually, the VOCs are derived from the adhesive, chemical compounds, and wood components.Expand

TLDR
This paper comprises the issue of VOCs emitted from wood and wood-based panels, and the most abundant V OCs were summarized. Expand
Ozone-Initiated Secondary Emission Rates of Aldehydes from Indoor Surfaces in Four Homes
Field experiments were conducted in four homes during summer to quantify ozone-induced secondary emission rates (SERs) of aldehydes on indoor surfaces. Four surfaces in each house were examined:Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that carpet surfaces become depleted of reactants as they become oxidized over time, however, countertop surfaces, which are cleaned frequently or become covered in cooking oils, are continuously replenished with reactants. Expand

Volatile organic compound and formaldehyde emissions from Populus davidiana wood treated with low molecular weight urea-formaldehyde resin.
TLDR
The modulus of elasticity (MOE) of untreated and treated wood at different WPG levels showed that treatment of wood with UF resin significantly improved the mechanical properties, and it is probably helpful to comprehensively analyze correlations among environmental performance, mechanical performance and processing costs.

Volatile organic compound concentrations and emission rates in new manufactured and site-built houses.
TLDR
Similarities in the types of VOCs and in VOC concentrations indicated that indoor air quality in the houses was impacted by the same or similar sources, and only several compounds showed a consistent decrease in emission rate over this period. Expand
