Volatile Organic Compounds

Protect your brand, employees and the environment by testing and monitoring for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) at low and ultra-low levels with ChemCentre’s experts.

VOCs are chemicals containing carbon, hydrogen and oxygen that readily move into the vapour state at standard temperature and pressures; VOCs can be found in soil, water and air.

Due to the nature of these compounds they may be easily detected through your sense of smell. However, not all compounds have an odour and many pose serious health risks if overexposure occurs.

From emissions testing to drinking water monitoring and everything in between; independent testing for VOCs from ChemCentre can ensure you are maintaining regulatory requirements and improve protection from long term exposure risks.

VOCs include a wide array of compounds; below is a list of our most commonly requested suites. If you can’t find what you’re looking for please contact us for more information.

  • Alcohols
  • Aldehydes and ketones
  • BTEX
  • C1-C6 hydrocarbons
  • Formaldehyde
  • Organosulphur VOCs
  • Radiello suite VOCs
  • Reduced sulphurs (including H2S and SO2)
  • Spectra suite VOCs
  • Terpenes
  • Volatile fatty acids (VFAs)
  • Volatile organic compound screen


Additionally, ChemCentre can analyse for a range of Semi-Volatile Organic Compounds (SVOCs) or you may find our occupational monitoring services of interest.
