Results and discussion

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Among others, diisopropyl benzene was quantitatively detected in kitchen waste exudate (n=7; HRGC-MS) as volatile compound. It was not detected in kitchen waste samples, garden waste, and in samples of infected building material.
Executive summary:

Volatile compounds from biodegradable household waste and infeced building materials have been studied by dynamic or equilibrium headspace sampling and concentration on Tenax TA followed by thermal desorption and HRGC-MS. Diisopropyl benzene was detected in kitchen waste exudate (n=7) but not quantified. Diisopropyl benzene was not detected in ten kitchen waste samples, five samples of garden waste, and in three samples of infected building material.
