List,

I seem to have misunderstood Genevieve's original inquiry. Based on
subsequent postings it seems that the intent was to explore pollution
abatement by houseplants involving the plants absorbing organic air
pollutants.

Hello Genevieve, below are some links you should find interesting. I have
only skimmed these articles but they seem to be much more accurate in their
methods and results. Of particular interest is the research done by a team
at the University of Technology, Sydney led by Prof. Margaret Burchett.
Also I point to remember is that the human body deals with pollutants
everyday and the psychological effects of pretty green things growing in
your office presumably have the knock on effect of improved health and
therefore likely improved ability to deal with pollutants. The other links
below have more detail.
