||Assessment of multiple markers of environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) in controlled, steady-state atmospheres in a dynamic test chamber
||Nov. 1992. Vol.53, No.11, p.699-704. Illus. 18 ref.
||Controlled test atmospheres of sidestream and mixed mainstream/sidestream tobacco smoke were produced in a dynamic test chamber. For each target level of smoke, a "smoke index" was calculated as the number of cigarettes being smoked divided by the dilution flow rate. Ultraviolet light-absorbing particulate matter (UVPM); aerosol counts and size distribution; and concentrations of CO, NO2, NH3, formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, acrolein, and nicotine were determined in the test atmospheres and background dilution air. Parameters exhibiting the highest correlations with smoke index included UVPM, aerosol counts, formaldehyde, and acetaldehyde. The levels of acetaldehyde, formaldehyde, and CO were significantly higher in mixed mainstream/sidestream smoke than in sidestream atmospheres. The generation factors developed in this work can be used for estimating required ventilation rates for attainment of target air quality conditions in smoking rooms.
