[en] Monoterpenes are compounds naturally emitted by wooden materials. A preliminary study had demonstrated the occurrence of some monoterpenes in the timber frame constructions. Contrary to the active sampling, the passive sampling with Radiello® device simplifies the sampling step that is an interest in indoor environment. However, the knowledge of the sampling rate is necessary for quantification via the passive samplers Radiello®.
Radiello® sampler with Tenax TA cartridge was evaluated for the 4-h concentration measurements of nine monoterpenes (α-pinene, β-pinene, d-limonene, Δ3-carene, camphene, carvone, 1,8-cineole, linalool and p-cymene). The performance parameters of the method (calibration curve, trueness, repeatability, blank level, stability of samples) were estimated.
The sampling rates were first evaluated under the standard conditions in an exposure chamber. The influences of three environmental factors (temperature (T), relative humidity (RH) and concentration level (C)) on the sampling rates were also evaluated following a full factorial design at two factor levels (low and high). The monoterpenes concentrations in the exposure chamber were followed by an active sampling on tube Tenax TA. For both sampling devices, analyses were realized by TD-GC-MS.
The results of this study demonstrated that the Radiello® device is suitable for the measurement of 5 of 9 studied monoterpenes. The sampling rates were defined by an equation including two factors, temperature and relative humidity. Temperature is found to be the most important factor leading to variability of the all monoterpene sampling rates. An equation allowing to estimate the sampling rate was established for every studied compound.
Measurements of monoterpenes with the Radiello® device were then carried out on new wooden houses and compared with measurements obtained by active sampling on Tenax TA tubes.
