Indoor Chemistry: An Emerging Science
In a modest ranch house on the outskirts of Austin, Texas, Shan Zhou prepares a basic stir fry recipe. She heats oil to a smoking hot temperature and then stirs in vegetables, which sear in the oil and send up a plume of steam. She pours in packaged stir fry sauce, which sizzles in the wok. Shan wasn’t cooking lunch. She is a researcher for a sophisticated, first-of-its-kind field study of pollutants in indoor air.
