Air Pollution Aspects of Odorous Compounds.
Sullivan, Ralph J.
This report deals with the less ubiquitous, but potentially harmful, contaminants that are in our atmosphere. Thirty such pollutants have been identified and available information has been summarized in a series of reports describing their sources, distribution, effects, and control technology for their abatement. A total of 27 reports have been prepared covering the 30 pollutants. These reports represent current state-of-the-art literature reviews supplemented by discussions with selected knowledgeable individuals both within and outside the Federal government. Among the pollutants covered are: aeroallergens, aldehydes, ammonia, arsenic, asbestos, barium, beryllium, biological aerosols, boron, cadmium, chromium, ethylene, hydrochloric acid, hydrogen sulfide, iron, manganese, mercury, nickel, odorous compounds, organic carcinogens, pesticides, phosphorous, radioactive substances, selenium, vanadium, and zinc.
