Composti Organici Volatili

Con la denominazione di Composti Organici Volatili (VOC) viene indicato un insieme di sostanze (più di trecento) in forma liquida o di vapore suscettibili di evaporare facilmente a temperatura ambiente.

La suscettibilità all’evaporazione e quindi la volatilità di queste sostanze è una diretta conseguenza delle proprietà chimico-fisiche dei VOC, in particolare dal loro punto di ebollizione che va da un limite inferiore di 50-100 °C a un limite superiore di 240-260 °C.

Tra i più noti vi sono:

  • idrocarburi alifatici (dal n-esano, al n-esadecano e i metilesani);
  • terpeni, gli idrocarburi aromatici;
  • (benzene e derivati, toluene, o-xilene, stirene);
  • gli idrocarburi alogenati (cloroformio, diclorometano, clorobenzeni, ecc.);
  • gli alcoli (etanolo, propanolo, butanolo e derivati);
  • gli esteri, i chetoni, e le aldeidi (tra cui la formaldeide);

Negli ambienti chiusi, negli interni di case, uffici, negozi c’è un’altissima concentrazione di sostanze VOC. Questi infatti si trovano in:

  • prodotti per la pulizia a cera (cere liquide e in aerosol per pavimenti e mobili);
  • prodotti per la pulizia dei bagni, dei vetri, dei forni, paste abrasive, detergenti per stoviglie, deodoranti solidi e spray;
  • pitture e prodotti associati: pitture ad olio, uretaniche, acriliche, vernici a spirito per gommalacca, mordente e coloranti per legno, diluenti, detergenti per pennelli, sverniciatori etc…;
  • pesticidi, insetticidi e disinfettanti;
  • colle e adesivi;
  • prodotti per la cura della persona e cosmetici;
  • prodotti per l’auto;
  • mobili e tessuti;
  • materiali da costruzione;
  • stampanti e fotocopiatrici;
  • fumo di tabacco.

Non mancano le sorgenti outdoor di VOC, tra le quali le emissioni industriali, i pesticidi ed i gas di scarico delle automobili.

Effetti sulla salute

I VOC danno luogo ad effetti acuti e cronici. A seconda delle concentrazioni e dei  tempi di esposizione tra gli effetti acuti si annoverano: irritazioni agli occhi, al naso e alla gola, mal di testa, nausea, vertigini, asma. Quando i tempi di esposizione sono prolungati oppure le concentrazioni sono elevate i  VOC possono causare sulla persona esiti cronici come danni ai reni, al fegato, al sistema nervoso centrale, fino a provocare il cancro (nel caso particolare del benzene e della formaldeide). I soggetti più sensibili ad i VOC ed alle loro conseguenze sono: le persone con problemi respiratori, i bambini, gli anziani ed i soggetti allergici ai composti chimici.

  25. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  26. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  27. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

The health agent is given a directory of benefits desired by anyone or a group coordinator. Exactly what a broker really does is hunt for individuals or perhaps coordinators that best complement those desires. Then he presents his referrals and if the two of you agree, this broker formulates a binding agreement between the 2 parties.
