Measurement of indoor air pollution - Measurement of pentachlorphenol (PCP) and γ-hexachlorocyclohexane (γ-HCH) - GC/MS and GC/ECD methods



Pentachlorphenol (PCP) and γ-hexacholocyclohexane (lindane) get indoors i.a. by the application of wood protection agent. Lindane is used as insecticidal in household and agriculture. It can be found in textiles and carpets, for example. PCP was used as fungicide in wallpapers, adhesive, colors, textiles, carpets and leather-ware. According to the Chemicals Prohibition Ordinance of 1993, the production, trade, and use of mixtures containing more than 0,01 % PCP or PCP-conjunctions is not allowed. Products which contain more than 5 mg/kg PCP due to treatment with these mixtures shall be not put into circulation since the 26th March 1990. Due to old stocks, PCP still gets into the indoor air. This standard deals with the determination of pentachlorophenol (PCP) and γ-hexachlorocyclo-hexane (γ-HCH, lindane). It is aimed at evaluators, experts, interior designers, consumers, the construction industry and equipment manufacturers.
