The life of people in the modern-day society has been improved in terms of both quality and quantity owing to the rapid industrial technology advancement and economic growth today. The use of building materials harmful to environments, however, has resulted in deterioration of health, indoor conditions, and air pollution, which involve various environmental and social problems. Since modern people would stay in indoor places such as school, office, and residence, during the most of the time in a day, the effect of such materials on health is of significance. Thus, this study proposes a building material that can enhance the quality of indoor air and reduce harmful substances indoors. The material used in this study consists of phytoncide and palm active carbon, which are well-known for the effect of indoor air quality improvement. As a result of the experiment, it turned out that when palm active carbon and phytoncide were used, the higher addition ratio, the higher absorption ratio. The density decreased accordingly. Strength properties gradually decreased as the addition ratio of phytoncide and palm active carbon increased. As for the measurements of VOCs, HCHO, and radon gas, as phytoncide and palm active carbon were added, the ratio of indoor air contaminants decreased accordingly.
