No. 74 - Determination of Selected Carbonyls in Mainstream Cigarette Smoke by High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)

(CRM being developed into ISO Project 21160)

February 2018 - fourth edition Ref. SMA-153-CRM-74

This Recommended Method is applicable to the determination of selected carbonyls (formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, acetone, acrolein, propionaldehyde, crotonaldehyde, 2-butanone and nbutyraldehyde) as their 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazones in mainstream smoke from cigarettes with ISO NFDPM yields between 1 and 15 mg/cigarette using reversed phase HPLCUV/DAD.

The described method is specified using ISO 3308 and Health Canada T-115 smoking parameters. The use of these machine smoking parameters reflects their inclusion in the reporting requirements of various national regulations rather than an endorsement of their appropriateness by CORESTA.
