Phytoncide, a forest healing indicator, is known to help reduce depression, anxiety, and stress. And has positive effects on blood pressure, pulse, and mood fluctuations. Previous studies mostly focused on phytoncide emission trends and predicting its concentration. However, the direct comparison of phytoncide concentrations between existing studies has been challenging due to differing units, target analytes, analysis conditions, etc., and unreported concentrations per type of compound. Therefore, this study evaluated the overall performance of adsorption sampling and thermal desorption coupled with gas chromatography for measuring phytoncide concentration in the forest atmosphere. For this purpose, analysis quality management and analysis accuracy were evaluated for the on-site sample in two different laboratories. The analysis results of individual laboratories on phytoncide can be provided as reference data for the BVOC adsorption capture-thermal desorption method.
Key Words: Phytoncide, BVOC, adsorption capture, thermal desorption
