Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
Is a group of volatile organic compounds that vaporizes into the air at normal temperature and pressure. Most molecules contain carbon and hydrogen atoms may have oxygen or Chlorine Evaporation at room temperature. In our daily lives, we receive VOCs from many products such as paint used at home, cigarette smoke, bleach, solvents in printing, paint spraying from cars, industrial plants, cleaning agents, hair dye solutions and reagents curling, insecticides, combustible substances, drinking water, drinks, food, organic substance.
