No. 82 - Determination of Benzo[a]pyrene in Tobacco Products by GC-MS

March 2018 - fourth edition Ref. TTPA-150-3-CRM-82

This CRM is applicable to the determination of B[a]P in tobacco, cigarette filler, smokeless tobacco (e.g. moist snuff, snus, chewing tobacco and dry snuff), and ground cigars. The calibration range specified is from 0,5 ng/ml to 300 ng/ml. This range correlates to 0,15 ng/g to 90 ng/g as is, wet weight. Samples with higher levels of B[a]P may be analysed by extracting less tobacco to bring the samples within the calibration range.
