No. 54 - Determination of Nicotine and Nicotine-Free Dry Particulate Matter in Sidestream Smoke using a Fishtail Chimney and a Routine Analytical/Linear Smoking Machine

(CRM developed into ISO 20773)

May 2011 - second edition

This Recommended Method is applicable to the determination of total particulate matter and to the subsequent determination of nicotine and nicotine-free dry particulate matter (NFDPM) 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.
