Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) Emission from plant species of the Vidarbha

Author : Rashmi Singh 1 M.P. Singh 2

Date of Publication :13th September 2017

Abstract: Plants emit numerous volatile organic compounds (VOC). In this study, 50 dominant plant species of Vidarbha region of Maharashtra, India were examined for VOC emissions. VOC emission rates of the plant species ranged from undetectable to75.2 g g-1 h-1. Maximum VOC emission rates of 75.2 g g-1 h-1 observed from Dalbergiasi sissoo
