Abstract

The formaldehyde vapor produced from wood and steel furniture was absorbed in distilled water and derivatized with acetylacetone and determined by UV-visible spectrophotometry. Variation in HCHO emission with time was monitored at room temperature. The emission of volatile compounds from wood, wood-based and steel-based materials was investigated in a 50 mL glass vial. The concentration of the gases emitted in a glass vial was determined by ion-trap GC-MS.
