AbstractThe adsorption/desorption a/volatile organic compounds (VOCs) on interior building materiaLsurfaces (i.e., the sink effect) can affect the VOC concentrations in a building, and thus need tohe accounted for in an indoor air quality (fAQ) prediction model. hI this study, the VOC adsorption/desorption characteristics (sink effect) were measured for four typical interior building materials including carpet. vinyl floor tile, painted drywall, and ceiling tile. The voes tested were ethylbenzene. cyclohexanone, 1,4
