This proceedings present study of ozone-initiated transformation of organic compounds emitted from the human body.
Ozone-initiated transformation of organic compounds emitted from the human body was studied. Experiments were performed in a unique stainless-steel twin-chamber that enabled the separation and measurements of dermal and exhaled emissions as well as measurements of whole-body emission. When ozone was present in the chamber, levels of aldehydes and 6-MHO increased. The reaction products were mainly associated with ozone reacting with the constituents of skin oil.
