Abstract

The objective of present study was to identify volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emittedfrom several sources (fuels, traffic, landfills, coffee roasting, a street-food laboratory, buildingwork, indoor use of incense and candles, a dental laboratory, etc.) located in Palermo (Italy)by using canister autosamplers and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) technique.In this study, 181 VOCs were monitored. In the atmosphere of Palermo city, propane, butane,isopentane, methyl pentane, hexane, benzene, toluene, meta- and para-xylene, 1,2,4 trimethyl benzene,1,3,5 trimethyl benzene, ethylbenzene, 4 ethyl toluene and heptane were identified and quantified inall sampling sites.
