If you’re like the typical human, you likely spend about 90% of your time inside. Our homes, businesses, exercise facilities, cars, and gathering places are all examples of indoor environments where we’re constantly breathing the air. Therefore, it is crucial to understand the chemistry occurring in these spaces and what it means to our health and well-being.
Lower air-exchange rates and different sources (e.g. cooking) in residences may lead to different oxidizing conditions. The proposed project combines field, laboratory, and chamber studies to determine what controls indoor oxidant levels in residences.
The first annual Chemistry of Indoor Environments Meeting will take place October 24 – 26 in Boulder, Colorado.
Deadline for applications: August 15, 2018.
