Abstract

Analysis of fifteen volatile organic compounds previously associated with laundry malodour has beeninvestigated using headspace solid phase microextraction gas chromatography–mass spectrometry. Lim-its of detection (all determined on a 25 cm2area of fabric) ranged from a low of 0.4 ng (for guaiacol)through to a high of 28 ng (for 3-methylindole) on cotton; values on polyester ranged from a low of0.7 ng (for dimethyl trisulfide) through to a high of 37 ng (for 3-methylindole); and, values on terry-towel ranged from a low of 1.7 ng (for guaiacol) through to a high of 157 ng (for ethyl benzene). Therewas a lack of correlation between the level of malodour and the occurrence of any of the VOCs detected;it could be that other compounds not evaluated in this study are responsible for malodour or it could bea collaborative effect of the various compounds studied.
