VOCs: Volatile Organic Compounds

Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, are organic chemicals that easily turn to vapor at ordinary room temperature due to their high vapor pressure. These chemicals have a low boiling point, which causes a large number of molecules to sublimate or evaporate from their solid or liquid form and begin to enter the surrounding air, a [...]
