Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is an important issue rising during these last two decades. First, the studies were aimed to avalutate the risk in the industrial areas but now the attention is focused on the IAQ evaluation in residential and non residential buildings (e.g., house, schools, public offices, etc.). Sensitive sub-population, i.e. elderlies, children, pregnant women, may be affected by diseases caused by exposire to old/new indoor pollutants. Particular attention should be given to new compounds because in many cases their health effects are still unknown. Starting from these considerations some new regulations/guidelines have been set up since few years: such regulations are different worldwide as well as the compounds regulated.
This Special Issue would like to deep the Indoor Air Quality evaluation in the light of the new legislations worldwide. Contributions related to new instruments for studying airborne and gaseous pollutants, new sampling and analysis methodologies, are wellcome as well as the modeling of the pollutant behavior in indoor and in buildings or the study of the (toxicological and not) effects of new pollutants on the biological systems are examples of topics of interest in this Special Issue.
