The predominant and persistent indoor VOCs included aldehydes (e.g., formaldehyde,
acetaldehyde, pentanal, hexanal and nonanal) and terpene hydrocarbons (e.g., a-pinene, 3-carene
and d-limonene), which are characteristic of wood product emissions. Other compounds of
interest included phenol, naphthalene, and other aromatic hydrocarbons. VOC concentrations
were generally typical of results reported for other new houses. Measurements of total VOCs
were used to evaluate short-term changes in indoor VOC concentrations. ...

monograph, it represents the results of numerous discussions and cooperations.
First of all I am grateful to Christian Dullo (GEOMAR, Kiel/Germany) for

Total dissolved organic carbon (TOC) in waters is always one of important factors to assess water quality. In this paper, we propose a simple procedure based on carbon measurements by ANATOC II analyzer to estimate the total dissolved organic carbon in waters of the river system in Hanoi. Our results which were carried out during the year of 2003 showed that carbon contents in the dissolved faction in this river system existed mainly in the organic form and that TOC contents strongly influenced the vegetation and climate.
