No. 5 - Determination of Carbon Monoxide in the Mainstream Smoke of Cigarettes by Non-Dispersive Infrared Analysis

(CRM developed into ISO 8454)

Sept. 1993 - second edition

Cigarettes are smoked according to a standardised procedure. With this method, the carbon monoxide of the total gas phase of the smoke is determined by non-dispersive infrared analysis. The yield is reported on a per cigarette basis. This method is applicable to the gas phase of the mainstream smoke of cigarettes.
