ISO 23919:2020 pdf download.Cigarettes — Determination of ammonia in cigarette mainstream smoke using ion chromatography
1 Scope
This document specifies a method for the quantification of ammonia by ion chromatography in mainstream smoke using ISO 3308 smoking parameters. This method is applicable to cigarettes with ammonia yields between 1 µg/cigarette and 30 µg/ cigarette. It is not applicable for the determination of ammonia in dark-air cured cigarettes.

4 Principle
Ammonia is collected by passing the mainstream smoke of cigarettes through either
a) a glass fibre filter pad as specified in ISO 3308 followed by impinger traps containing dilute sulphuric acid (trapping system 1 in the document), or
b) an impregnated glass fibre filter pad followed by an untreated glass fibre filter pad (trapping system 2 in the document).
The glass fibre filter pad is extracted either with the impinger solutions (trapping system 1) or with dilute hydrochloric acid (trapping system 2). The obtained solutions are analysed by ion chromatography using an external standard calibration.
