A sensitive, real-time, and molecular-selective analyzer using a resonance-enhanced multiphoton ionization/time-offlight mass spectrometer (REMPI-TOFMS) was combined with the chamber method to measure emission factors of VOCs during painting. Temporal variation of VOC emission was successfully captured on site on a second time scale. Exact and detailed assessment of emission is realized with molecular-dependent characteristics considered.
