In recent years, the frequency of odor and VOC pollution has been rising steadily to result in a change in our understanding of pollution in the urban environment. As a result, this type of pollution began to exert direct impacts on human health and nuisance at levels of pollution previously considered non-effective. More efforts are hence desirable to improve our application of sensing techniques to the detection and accurate evaluation of odorous compounds, characterization of odor pollution including human odor, and the direction of legislative and technical efforts to control various odorants. In this special issue, researchers are invited to present articles emphasizing more than one of the following subjects: (1) the measurement (sampling and/or sensing) techniques for odorants and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), (2) quantitative/qualitative analysis of human odor released from human body or excretion, and (3) legislative and/or technical efforts to control odor and VOCs in industry or livelihood facilities.
