    There is a relationship between damp buildings and health complaints.

    Damp conditions in building constructions also favour the growth of micro-organisms.

    Growth of micro-organisms results in the production of volatile organic compounds, which has been shown to have an impact on Indoor-air monitored via a microbial volatile organic compound (MVOC) analysis.

    In order to widen the applicability of MVOC analysis, it is necessary to increase this analysis by including more volatiles.

    By active sampling on Anasorb 747 and selected ion monitoring on a mass spectrometer equipped with a quadropole detector, it is possible to determine these volatiles with sufficient accuracy in indoor air of non-industrial buildings.
