    Abstract

    Phthalates are used as plasticizers and flame retardants in building materials and phthalates emitted in indoor environment tend to adhere to house dust According to Wensing, infants take dust lOtimes as adults, so an investigation on the concentration of phthalates in house dust is important. This study was measured the concentration of DEHP for house dust and compared for house dust before and after renovation in Korea houses. And, using micro-chamber method, for the building products of Japan and South Korea were measured the emission rates of semi volatile organic compounds. Floor product in Korea is higher than the emission rates of DEHP for floor product in Japan.
