Abstract

The absorption characteristics of formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, propionaldehyde, n-butyraldehyde and valeraldehyde by Schefflera octophylla and Chamaedorea elegans were investigated at the laboratory simulation environment of short-term exposure to different CO2 concentrations. Under normal circumstances, the C1-C5 aldehyde removal rates of Schefflera octophylla and Chamaedorea elegans were ranged from 0.311 mol/m2/ h for valeraldehyde to 0.677 mol/m2/ h for formaldehyde, and 0.526 mol/m2/ h for propionaldehyde to 1.440 mol/m2/ h for formaldehyde, respectively. The CO2 experiments showed that the total aldehydes removal rates of Schefflera octophylla and Chamaedorea elegans decreased 32.0% and 43.2%, respectively, with the increasing of CO2 experiments from 350ppmv to 1400ppmv. This might be explaned by that high CO2 concentrations can induce stomatal closure, which as an responce for plants facing environmental changes, and consequently impacts on the abilities of absorbing air pollutants.
