    Dermal Exposure to Indoor Pollutants

    Fundamental considerations indicate that, for certain organic compounds, dermal absorption from air is an uptake pathway that is comparable to or greater than inhalation. Yet this pathway has not been experimentally evaluated and has been largely overlooked when assessing uptake of indoor pollutants.
