No. 65 - Determination of Total and Nicotine-Free Dry Particulate Matter using a Routine Analytical Cigar-Smoking Machine – Determination of Total Particulate Matter and Preparation for Water and Nicotine Measurements
This Recommended Method is applicable to the determination of total particulate matter and for the subsequent determination of nicotine-free dry particulate matter present in the mainstream smoke from cigars, generated and collected using a routine analytical smoking machine.
The purpose of Method Nº 65 is to allow comparisons to be made between different types of cigars by using a strictly controlled set of smoking parameters. As such, Method Nº 65 is to be considered as a technical convention, which does not intend to reflect human smoking behaviour.
