Volatile organic carbon (VOC) in indoor air is a matter of concern. The conventional adsorbents used for monitoring of VOC's are beset with drawbacks. A new class materials,namely surface modified zeolites (SMZ) has been synthesized from flyash as the source material. SMZ have been used for indoor monitoring of VOCs vis-a-vis conventional adsorbents. The adsorbed VOCs were desorbed at higher temperature and analysed using GC-MS Technique. Thr VOC adsorbed on SMZ are much higher compaired to activated carbon, illustrating the successful usage oF SMZ as novel and versatile adsorbent for VOC monitoring.
