Description

A gaseous, Aerosol, or Particulate contaminant. Pollutants are generated by natural and man-made sources, such as decomposition, abrasion, or combustion. They can deposit and interact deleteriously with museum materials. Examples of gas-phase pollutants are Ozone, Hydrogen sulfide, Sulfur dioxide, Nitrogen oxides, Formaldehyde, Formic acid, and Acetic acid. Scavengers are used to minimize the concentration of air pollutants in contained spaces.

Synonyms and Related Terms
