Ion Science Guide to What Is A VOC.

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a wide range of natural and synthetically occurring chemicals which are found almost everywhere on earth and even in outer space!

They are described as volatile because they evaporate at temperatures found on Earth, releasing molecules into the atmosphere.

VOCs are also extremely useful for mankind. They form the building blocks of many synthetic materials (plastics, rubbers, glues, paints etc.), used to create pharmaceuticals and are a great fuel for transport and heating.
