Abstract
Electronic devices such as computer monitors emit a large number of different chemicals to the indoor and their environment under operating conditions, particularly due to their heat development. This basically creates a potential exposure of the room users to those chemicals, some of which may be injurious to human health because of their classification as toxic substances. The spectrum of emissions ranges from more volatile (VOL) auxiliary productions agents (solvements) and residual emissions of plastic monomers up to more semi-volatile plasticizers and flame retardants (SVOC) which are added to polymer materials in well-animed way in order to achieve certain desired material properties durably. The paper describes the measurement of these emissions with a 1 m3 test chamber and the health-related evaluation of the results.
