Title = Emission of Monoterpenes from Wooden Furniture 
Abstract = Emissions from wooden shelf boards were monitored in climate test chambers and more than 20 different monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes could be detected. The highest initial concentration was recorded for alpha-pinene with -- 4000 ug/m, which decayed significantly within one week. Other important components, which occurred in higher concentrate were 3-pinene, delta-3-carene and limonene. When repeating the test with the same samples after seven months, 120 - 130 um/m alpha-pinene were still found in the chamber air. During this test period, a constant emission with a TVOC value of about 200 ug/m was observed. Differences between two 1 m chambers and the FLEC cell were obvious in one case.
