Abstract

Inhalation of p-DCB and naphthalene has been linked to several health effects. Several off-the-shelf consumer products are nearly pure p-DCB or naphthalene, thus leading to potential for high emission rates and gas-phase concentrations in indoor environments where such products are used. Knowledge of p-DCB and naphthalene emission rates and variability in emissions with environmental conditions should provide for improvements in predictions of indoor concentrations of these compounds, which are in turn needed to complete exposure and inhalation risk assessments.
