What are VOCs?

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a large group of liquids and gases, of which many are odourless and colourless. These liquids evaporate at room temperature. Volatile organic compounds are a general problem, as they may react with other harmful substances in the lower atmosphere, for example with nitrogen oxides, thus producing ozone. High ozone concentrations at ground level can impair human health, cause crop failures and attack materials such as rubber. Some volatile organic compounds are directly harmful to human health (e.g. carcinogenic), contribute to global warming (e.g. methane) or destroy the ozone layer in the stratosphere which protects life on Earth against dangerous ultra-violet radiation (e.g. methyl bromide).
