There is a great deal of research going on at the University of Georgia by Dr. Bodie Panisi concerning the ability of plants to remove organic compounds from the air… Unfortunately they are using common houseplants which are available in greenhouse production by tropical foliage plant industry and they are not all Aroids.
Main thrust of her research was to see if house plants and interiorscape plants in homes and offices do help to detoxify our air. So far the answer is “yes” they do but it varies from variety to variety as to how much stuff they can ameliorate.
See if you can locate her published work on line or through the university of Georgia.

Subject: [Aroid-l] depolluting plants
I want your opinion on depolluting plants because the aroids family is often present (Anthurium, Pothos, Philodendron and especially Spathyphillum). There are scientific studies about aroids? If so, which?
Or that is only a means for commercial sale?
I 'm very interested.
