In the present work an experimental device for the detection of pollutants released in indoor environment is presented. The system, constituted by a flux-chamber equipped with sensors for the control of relevant thermophysical parameters (temperature, relative humidity, air velocity), allows to trace the release curves of pollutants emitted from samples of widely employed furnishings. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
