2015 Collaborative Study Developing a CRM for the Determination of Total Sugars in Tobacco by Continuous Flow Analysis
RAC Technical Report
The CORESTA Recommended Methods (CRM) Nos. 37 and 38 are available for the analysis of the respective tobacco parameters but there is no harmonised method available for the analysis of ‘Total Sugars’ in tobacco. The CORESTA Scientific Commission approved a study project, coordinated within the Routine Analytical Chemistry (RAC) Sub-Group, for the development of a harmonised method, based on CRM No. 38, for the determination of ‘Total Sugars’ by continuous flow analyses (CFA) in tobacco and tobacco products. This report outlines the collaborative study leading to the development of CRM No. 89.
CRM 89 - Tobacco – Determination of the Content of Total Sugars – Continuous-Flow Analysis Method using Hydrochloric Acid / P-Hydroxy Benzoic Acid Hydrazide (PAHBAH) (April 2019)
CRM 38 - Determination of Reducing Carbohydrates in Tobacco by Continuous Flow Analysis (Aug. 2010)
CRM 37 - Determination of Reducing Substances in Tobacco by Continuous Flow Analysis (Aug. 2010)
