Large scale experiment probes chemistry inside our homes

Funding for indoor research is hard to obtain, in part thanks to the misconception that air pollution is solely an outdoor problem. Only a small number of indoor field measurements have been collected previously, usually looking at a few chemicals with a couple of instruments.

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.
