Abstract
The goal of this work is the modeling and calculation of volatilization factors (VFs) from water to air for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in order to perform human health risk - base d reference levels (RLs) for the safe use of water. The VF models have been developed starting from the overall mass - transfer coefficients ( K overall ) concept from air to water for two interaction geometries (flat surface and spherical droplets) in indoor a nd outdoor scenarios . For a case study with five g...
