This document describes a test method for conservation materials which can evaluate their impact on cellulose as the main constituent of paper-based collections caused by emission of their volatile compounds.

NOTE This test can be extended to museum artefacts.

This document is applicable to papers and boards used for conservation and storage of cellulose based items.

It is not applicable to parchment-based items.

It does not evaluate the effects due to direct contact between the papers and boards used for conservation and the collections.
