Features

  • Focuses on common indoor environments and environments associated with chronic exposure
  • Examines measurement methods and competing sources of indoor air contaminants commonly attributed to ETS
  • Discusses chemical composition of environmental tobacco smoke
  • Covers the trend toward determining sidestream smoke constituent levels in chambers including more realistic dilution levels
  • Summary

    Written by experts in the field, The Chemistry of Environmental Tobacco Smoke: Composition and Measurement, Second Edition compiles data on the properties of Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS) and on concentrations of its constituents in indoor air. The authors focus on common natural indoor environments and environments associated with chronic exposure. They stress measurement methods and competing sources of indoor air contaminants commonly attributed to ETS.
