Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this lab is to investigate and compare three ways to eliminate the methanol in the air which is commonly produced by the refurbishment of furniture, they are respectively by pineapple slices, distilled water and formaldehyde cleaner. Methods: The main methods used in this lab are: 1. Control variables: In these three trials, the initial concentration of methanol is the same, the time elapsed for the three reactant to react with the methanol are the same. 2. Transfer approach: Since the initial and final concentration of the methanol is hard to be measured, with the help of the test solution, we can easily get to know the instant concentration of the methanol . Results: The ability of three ways of eliminating methanol, from high to low is distilled water , formaldehyde cleaner and the pineapple slices, based on the data that their change in the methanol concentration are respectively 4.94mg/m3 , 4.80mg/m3 and 3.80mg/m3. Conclusion: We suggest that after painting the wall, people should use water to absorb methanols released. The pineapple slices is a relatively infeasible way to eliminate methanol.
