Description: Urea-formaldehyde-type adhesives have the inherent characteristic of giving off free formaldehyde under some conditions of use. The vapor can build up to concentrations which can be a nuisance, uncomfortable, or an actual health hazard. The "formaldehyde problem" is reviewed, from literature sources, in five respects : oriqins, analytical, control and removal, toxicology, and odor and (general methods of) odor control. Correlation between the citations in each section, and between the sections, is provided by appropriate annotation. The report is current to January 1977.

Keywords: Adhesives, bibliographies, emission, formaldehyde, urea formaldehyde, particleboards, plywood, health hazards, analytical methods, control, toxicology, odor abatement, formaldehyde, adhesives (wood)
