Abstract

Readers will be introduced to the most common sampling and analytical techniques that are being used indoors for air quality monitoring though the simultaneous determination of several air pollutants (i.e., inorganic and organic gaseous contaminants and airborne particulate matter) and the possible challenges encountered by implementing them. Thus, i) personal exposure equipment; (ii) portable multipollutant monitors; and (iii) fixed monitoring devices have been reviewed. Besides, compiling the most common modular arrangements of instruments, multipollutant analysis approaches through time-integrated and continuous sampling performed during field campaigns organized in several indoor environments in the frame of collaborative research projects are hereby also presented. Our aim was not to compile a comprehensive review on approaches used for multipollutant indoor air quality monitoring but instead to give an overview of potentially useful instrumentation. Discussion on instruments useful for the determination of radicals and bioaerosols as well as use of sensors has been voluntary minimized.
