About Evert Ljungström

Research We spend most of our time, typically more than 90% indoors. The quality of indoor air is therefore of great importance for our health and well-being. We study how noxious products are formed through chemical reactions indoorts between pollutants in the ventilation air and substances emitted indoors. Formation of aerosol particles and peroxyacetyl nitrate have been investigated. Work on indoor formation of exotic substances the effect on air quality was earlier supported by Formas. A new field of research that is explored together with Occupational and Environmental Medicine at Sahlgrenska Academy, is exhaled particles. These particles are generated in the bronchioles and carry information about the medical status of the subject generating the particles. So far, surface active compounds such as phosphatidylcholine, surfactant proteines and glutathione (unpublished) have been identified in the particles.
