Special Issue Information

Dear Clleagues,

The monitoring of odorants is often considered a crucial element in the assessment of indoor and outdoor air quality. This is because many odorants exert adverse impacts on human health and comfort, while some can also participate in the formation of photochemical smog. Considering their socio-economic impact, a number of odorants have recently been designated as criteria offensive odorants in many countries. Both qualitative and quantitative detection of odorous pollutants in all environmental matrices (e.g., air, water, and soil) has always been a challenge because of their highly reactive nature and presence in complex matrices at a wide concentration range. More efforts are thus needed to improve our application of sensing techniques to the detection and accurate evaluation of various odorants. This special issue aims to present articles emphasizing more than one of all the available tools to detect odor phenomena or individual odorants: (1) sampling techniques for odor (and odorants), (2) olfactometric approach, (3) electronic nose, (4) other sensing tools and techniques, and (5) advanced instrumentation (e.g., combination of thermal desorption with GC-MS or MS-MS, GC-GC, etc).
