Carbonyl Pollution - Conference Report

A two day conference entitled Museum Pollution : Detection and Mitigation of Carbonyls was held at Strathclyde University on the 17-18 June 1998. Over 30 delegates from the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Canada and the US attended. Several carbonyl pollution (acetic acid, formic acid and formaldehyde) issues were discussed and a number of actions were proposed. The more important conclusions and aspects drawn from the meeting are listed below :

A summary of the conference is available and, in time, a document will be prepared containing the conference presentation abstracts and our future research plan. Results of the on-going research will be presented at the next meeting in '99.
