Cigarette Smoke Analysis by Computer - GLC

   | 12 jul 2014


A two-stage GLC system has been developed to produce a separation of cigarette smoke "semi-volatiles" into several hundred peaks per analysis. Quantitative measurements of the separated peak areas, with correction for baseline drift and an internal standard value, are made by an off-line computer, using a digital output obtained from the GLC system on punched tape. The main features of the computer program used are described, and typical output data are shown. Results of analyses dealing with cigarette smoke composition, and the selective effect of various filters, are presented. The use of neophytadiene as reference compound for the selectivity calculations is described
