Proficiency Study of Menthol in Cigarettes and Cut Filler

RAC Technical Report

May 2018 Ref. RAC-116-0-CTR

The CORESTA Routine Analytical Chemistry Sub-Group (RAC) conducted a proficiency study of menthol in cigarettes and cut filler in the first quarter of 2017. The objective of the study was to evaluate in-house methods for determination of menthol in cigarettes, cut filler, and non-tobacco material.

Based on the results, which were generally comparable across the participating laboratories, a method has been proposed for evaluation and, if fit for purpose, will be proposed as a CORESTA Recommended Method (CRM).
