Abstract

A report on the development of a building material, made from unfired vermiculite board was presented. The board enables an adhesive-free interior finish work and prevents emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC). It was found that vermiculite-tobermorite complex in the board decomposed formaldehyde and VOC's with a cooperative catalytic reaction.
