Title = The field and laboratory emission cell - a realistic climatic chamber for emission testing? 
Abstract = Emission testing of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from building materials requires a climatic chamber in which certain parameters are controlled during the test period, in addition to a clean air supply. The important parameters which can be controlled in climatic chambers are the air exchange rate and the air velocity, the temperature, and the relative humidity. These and the recovery of important VOCs, the chamber tightness, and the sink properties could form the required performance criteria of a climatic chamber including the overall analytical performance. The recovery of VOCs and the time to reach quasi chamber equilibrium concentration, to some extent, reflect the sink property of the chamber wall (chamber inertness) and the chamber tightness.
