Abstract: The European Indoor Air Monitoring and Exposure Assessment Project (AIRMEX) (2003-2008) was designed with the aim to identify and quantify the principal air contaminants present in public buildings, including indoor environments frequented by children, like in schools and kindergartens, and to evaluate to what extent people's exposure to these pollutants is affected while working and/or remaining in these areas. Within this frame, measuring campaigns in eleven European cities located in Southern, Central and Northern Europe were carried out to monitor indoo/outdoor and personal exposure concentrations of selected volatile hydrocarbons (VOCs) including low molecular weight carbonyls (CARB). In total, about 1000 samples from 182 working environments (offices, class rooms, waiting halls) in piblic buildings, schools and kindergartens, from 103 private (home) places and from adult volunteers (148 samples) were analysed for VOCs and CARBs.
