The objective of present study was to identify volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emittedfrom several sources (fuels, traffic, landfills, coffee roasting, a street-food laboratory, buildingwork, indoor use of incense and candles, a dental laboratory, etc.) located in Palermo (Italy)by using canister autosamplers and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) technique.In this study, 181 VOCs were monitored. In the atmosphere of Palermo city, propane, butane,isopentane, methyl pentane, hexane, benzene, toluene, meta- and para-xylene, 1,2,4 trimethyl benzene,1,3,5 trimethyl benzene, ethylbenzene, 4 ethyl toluene and heptane were identified and quantified inall sampling sites.

Abstract

The objective of present study was to identify volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emittedfrom several sources (fuels, traffic, landfills, coffee roasting, a street-food laboratory, buildingwork, indoor use of incense and candles, a dental laboratory, etc.) located in Palermo (Italy)by using canister autosamplers and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) technique.In this study, 181 VOCs were monitored. In the atmosphere of Palermo city, propane, butane,isopentane, methyl pentane, hexane, benzene, toluene, meta- and para-xylene, 1,2,4 trimethyl benzene,1,3,5 trimethyl benzene, ethylbenzene, 4 ethyl toluene and heptane were identified and quantified inall sampling sites.
