Shuang’s paper published on ES&T!

We are super excited about Shuang’s paper just published online on Environmental Science & Technology! (LINK) Microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs) are responsible for malodors and certain health issues related to indoor air. Henry’s law constants, and partitioning coefficients in general, governs the behavior and exposure pathway of organic pollutants. The Henry’s law constants of many MVOCs were either unknown or unreliable. In this paper, Shuang developed a reliable method to determine Henry’s law constants of key MVOCs. In collaboration with Dr. Chen Wang at SUSTech (LINK), we have also input Shuang’s results into a 2D chemical partitioning plot to simulate behavior of these MVOCs in the indoor environment.
