No. 55 - Determination of Carbon Monoxide in the Vapour Phase of Cigarette Sidestream Smoke using a Fishtail Chimney and a Routine Analytical/Linear Smoking Machine

(CRM developed into ISO 20774)

May 2011 - second edition

This Recommended Method is applicable to the determination of carbon monoxide present in the sidestream smoke from cigarettes. The described method is specified using the ISO 3308:2000 smoking parameters (puff volume, duration and frequency) and butt length, but it is technically compatible with other smoking regimes. The method may not be directly applicable to other sidestream smoke analytes.
