Anisole, or methoxybenzene, was the only MVOC observed exclusively in S.
Additionally, the much higher emission factor of methoxybenzene in the "light-growth mixed molds" sample than in the "heavy-growth mixed molds" sample could be due to more rapid production during the initial growth period, with heavy visible growth of molds indicative of senescence.
Certain mold selective MVOCs were identified including methoxybenzene for Stachy-botrys chartarum; benzothiazole and menthol were identified as potential indicators for Chaetomium globosum.
The hydrogenated silicon surface p-type and orientation (111) was amended by the electrochemical reduction of methoxybenzene diazonium.
